My boss has been harassing me. What should I do?

First, you must look at your employer’s policy manual or employee handbook to determine if it has a policy prohibiting harassment and, if so, whether that policy includes a procedure for lodging complaints about harassment. If the policy includes such a procedure, you must comply with it, unless the procedure designates only the person harrassing you as the person to bring your complaint to.

Apart from this, you should document all incidents of harassment and communicate your request that the harassment end to both your boss and your human resources representative, both verbally and in a confirming writing (e-mail is fine).

By doing this, you provide yourself with legal protection against retaliation by your employer for raising the complaint of harassment and preserve your right to make a claim in court if the harassment continues.
