Are You Being Bullied By Your Boss?
We would all like to think that bullying stops once we leave school. Unfortunately, it can carry over into the workplace. Supervisors, managers and executives may all exhibit bullying behavior. If you feel like you are being bullied by your superior, you have a right to speak up. If your employer does nothing about it, you have a right to file a lawsuit against the company. Our Indianapolis lawyers have experience in handling workplace bullying claims and can help you.

A Definition Of Bullying In The Workplace
To bring a hostile work environment claim against your employer, you would have to have experienced physical contact that puts you in fear of your safety. This can be anything from your boss poking you while yelling at you or making demands to being pushed or hit by your boss.
Our attorneys will review your work history as well as your superior's work history regarding past conflicts with subordinates and past complaints against the person in question. We may find other potential actions resulting from this situation that may be to your benefit.
It is not only your right; it is your responsibility to stand up for your safety at work. If you are being bullied, it is possible that some of your colleagues are experiencing the same negative treatment. Speaking out and doing something about this behavior is in everyone's best interests.
It is illegal for an employer to retaliate against you if you engage in a protected action. Filing a complaint against your superior or filing a lawsuit against your employer are both considered protected actions. If you experience any form of retaliation for taking action, we will protect your rights on this count as well.
