  • California - Abusive Behavior California

    Can someone explain to me what the process is for reporting abusive behavior from a boss or coworker in the state of California, if there is any?

    This is not sexual abuse or discrimination, but rather verbal abuse, and some individuals have reported they fear potential physical abuse if the person in question doesn't start controlling themselves.

    If it is not physical, and it is not sexual harassment or illegal discrimination, then it is entirely an internal affair. Employment law does not address the question. The same applies in all 50 states.

    Is there an HR office you can discuss it with?
    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.

      Unfortunately, as it is a very small company, there isn't anyone I could talk to without it getting back to the individual in question, and those concerned would like to remain anonymous within the company.

      Should it actually escalate to physical abuse, what is the reporting process?

        If it becomes physical, you pick up the phone and you call the cops. There is no employment law regulatory agency that manages this.
