I have suffered under frequent berating by my employer. He is often screaming disrespectfully, unprofessionally, and rudely. Fequently he curses and uses profanity directed at me. My actions do not prompt such behavior. I have tendered my resignation from this position for this reason; the emotional stress and harrassment I receive is simply not worth the paycheck. I am wondering if there is any sort of claim that I can reasonably make in this circumstance.1 answer | asked Jan 9, 2004 01:16 AM [EST] in Employment Law | applies to Texas
You should consult a local attorney to see if you have a claim for intentional infliction of emotional distress. The basic elements of this claim are that the conduct is severe and outrageous, it was intentional and that you suffered severe emotional distress as a result.
