  • verbal harassment, threats Florida

    The supervisor where I work is verbally abusive to the employees. He uses foul language and makes threats. A great deal he says about people is done behind their backs to other employees. When he is verbally abusive to someone directly it is in a hit and run manner leaving you very little chance to respond let alone defend yourself. Most of the employees are from other countries and there is the constant attack by him on their lack of enough English to "understand" him. Is there anything that can be done about this behavior? Has he the right to be verbally abusive and threatening?

    Yes, of course unless he threatens thier lives, which can be reported to the police, but I don't know how serious they will take it.

      Sorry, 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.
