I need advise I really want to report my boss for making a hostile work environment but i am terrified of retaliation. She is really close to my regional and we(me and my other coworkers) have brought our concerns to our regional already and they have been basically made on deaf ears. I have come close to calling HR several times but my fear of retaliation always stops me

Start interviewing and once there’s an offer, report


That is true and I have looked at a few jobs just didnt want it to go that way


Usually if it’s a woman you are complaining about, no one will take any action. In addition to that if you are a MOC, you are screwed unfortunately. You are better off looking for another job.


I did.

Are you sure you're not the assistant to the manager?


Sorry to hear that. Document everything and make sure you have evidence - data points/facts versus feelings/emotions. One off instance will be hard to take seriously, if multiple instances, makes it easier to make a case. Unfortunate side effect is your EM finds out/guesses who its from and makes life hell for you.


It is terrible we all are miserable when she is there but on days she isnt we all function and communicate so much better its just frustrating


So when you say hostile work environment what do you mean? In a legal context that only means harassment based on protected class. If she’s just being horrible but to everyone, you can report it, but it doesn’t meet the legal definition of hostile work environment.


Is hostile work really just for a protected class? I thought it was more about the conduct, not the target.

Is it just me or is work so much less interesting when WFH? I am single, live with my very chill dog, and I don’t have a ton of distractions at home (i.e. family), and I still can’t focus or feign interest in my work. Not that I am dying to be on the road or at a client site again but I feel like it’s generally a more positive environment at least when I am in the room with my team. I am probably just missing the in-person social interaction even though I am not super chummy with my colleagues.

She says she isn't attracted to him at all, and that I should just trust her. I don't feel great about it - I wouldn't do this to her. This wouldn't be an issue if she was single. Thoughts?
