Bullying Bosses

Is it illegal for my boss to harrass or bully me?

No, it is not illegal for your boss to harass you unless it is based upon an illegal reason. Even though it seems unfair, it is not illegal to have a bullying boss. The law does not require that your boss be nice, kind or fair, only that your boss does not treat you differently because of your age, sex, race, religion, national origin, or disability. If you believe that you are being harassed for one of the above reasons, you should contact your nearest Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or log onto www.eeoc.gov to find your nearest office.
