Question Ask the Workplace Doctors about boss who yells and curses.
My boss yells and curses at me in front of guest in our hotel. What can I do to take this to wage and labor?
Your options are direct and indirect. Direct: speak to him/her about how you feel and learn if it will stop. Indirect: bypass your boss and report the yelling and cursing to the boss’ superior or Human Resources.
Direct Approach: I know it would take courage to say to your boss, “Mr. or Ms. Kemper (or whatever is her/his name), I am embarrassed when you yell and criticize me in front of our guests. If you see mistakes I am making, please explain them to me privately and don’t yell. Is that too much to ask of you?”
