Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about threats: He “jokingly” threaten to physically hurt me. He’ll walk up to me at random times and ask if he can hit me.
I’m a female, and my boss is a man. For the last few months, he’s started thinking its funny to “jokingly” threaten to physically hurt me. He’ll walk up to me at random times and ask if he can hit me, and he says these things for no apparent reason. One time he had a large garden shovel in his hands from where they were doing something in the yard there, and he asked if he could hit me with it. More recently, he’s mentioned something about punching me in the stomach until I throw up. He said that if he burned me with something there at the store, he wouldn’t feel bad about it. And he’s said that if something heavy fell and hit me in the head, he would laugh about it.
