Owner of Company Used Vile Language To Me

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about boss who publically cusses you:

What can you do if the owner of a company cusses you out like a dog in front of other coworkers and customers, using vile, demeaning language?

Dear Treated Like A Dog:

There are probably many issues going on with this situation and your question doesn’t make those clear. My first thought, of course, is that the best way to respond is to do as Dr. Gorden often recommends and “vote with your feet” by leaving a workplace like that.If the person yelling at you is the owner of the company you have no one higher to go to, so you can’t make a complaint. I doubt this was the first time this has happened, so it isn’t likely going to improve and at some point you will be yelled at again.
