  • boss keeps threating

    My boss has made several threats and I want to know what I could do legally. I am looking for a new job anyways just want this guy to pay. Some examples of the threats were" I wanted to grab you by the shoulders and rip your skin off "and "wipe that smirk of your face before I wipe it off for you" stuff like that. Ever since I tore my ACL and had to take time off work this has been going on.


    thanx for your help in advance

    Your boss is a jerk but being a jerk is not illegal.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      Are any of the threats serious or just words?
      Not everything that makes you mad, sad or uncomfortable is legally actionable.

      I am not now nor ever was an attorney.

      Any statements I make are based purely upon my personal experiences and research which may or may not be accurate in a court of law.

        Just words but I feel that one screw up and i am out the door, he told me that I'm a heart beat away from job refusal and he is watching me ( just because I can't sit in a crane for 10 out of a 12 hour shift do to the sergey on my knee)

          "Just words" threats are not illegal.

            threats

            he said he "wanted to" not "that he was going to"

            find a new job, sucks on the injury though. Doesn't make you very marketable.

              Threatening your job is legal... not very nice and certainly not professional, but not illegal.

                There is nothing you can do legally because he is not doing anything illegal - just being a real jerk.

                Continue to look for other employment as you indicated you were. Good luck.
                Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
