Findlay, OH asked in Employment Law and Business Law for Ohio

Q: Do I have a lawsuit if other employees at my job are harassing, intimidating, and bullying me with no consequences

There was a employee group chat started that included every employee except for me, where I was the topic of conversation and only negative things that were very defaming were said by two of my employees and even my general manager chimed in. When I brought this to my district managers attention absolutely nothing was fine about it and no one was given any consequences. A few days later one of the same employees and I were on the same shift and she began giving me an attitude and as the manager in charge of the store at the time I told her to go home two times and she refused and used vulgar language while doing so. A few minutes later she began yelling at me again and when I once again told her to go home she started cussing at in and calling me names in front of other employees and customers. I immediately brought this situation to the attention of my district manager and my general manager and once again there was no consequences of any kind and it has been swept under the rug.

A: That's probably something you should first discuss with the company HR department. If you are being harassed, then you might have a claim against the company if it fails to act. So in that case, use the Find a Lawyer tab to talk to a local employment law attorney.
