so I changed jobs recently and 1 week after I started another guy started. He made a point of making my life a misery because of my nationality. Typical inmate style stuff. I need the job but I cant take the stress of him threatening to punch me in the face etc. which I have basically ignored. now today he claims I vandalized his car and said if I dont come out side and sort it out like a man then he will call the sheriff.

so I went to the boss and informed him of whats going on and he said that I must ignore him and get my work done. I went back to work but I cant take his verbal abuse. Should I just quit?
Also he has 3 other relatives working there

update

I dont know what the correct action would be in this situation. where I come from no one calls the cops or its the last choice.
I went into the office and quit today the boss said have a nice christmas and see you tuesday morning.

Document and record, then go over your bosses head and talk to HR with documented proof of threats of violence.

Uh, report it to HR. You did your duty and reported it to your manager. He did nothing so now you go to HR.

Call the cops before he does and let them know you're being physically threatened.

Record. Have a lawyer handy for that discrimination lawsuit.

Did I just say that?


On a more serious note, I'd just quit if it's a small joint like that. No good can come from it.

just go outside with him and stop the threat.

File a restraining order against him for threatening you. He'll probably have to quit.

Start looking for another job. Or, let him assault you then sue the boss for not responding to your complaints about threats of violence in the workplace. Document everything with times, dates, and names and the exact wording.

Constructive discharge.

All laughs about the employee who "couldn't take a joke". That is, until the lawyers figure out the owner/HR are one and the same.

Then the shit gets real.

With 3 relatives there, probably ganging up on you, be very careful you dont have an 'industrial accident' and get injured.

Does the boss/owner condone/see any of this happening, or is it all he said/he said. Any security cameras? Other witnesses?

Do you 'fit in' with the rest of the crew, or are you a 'loner' that nobody talks to?

Watch your ass. As stated above, with only 12 employees, its gonna get rough.

I am a machinist and I basically run half the shop (not by my choice) including 1 of his relatives. I am the person every one comes to for parts or help with their problems because I can read the blueprints.

This, definitely. If management has been informed that there is an issue and they fail to address the situation, this fits the criteria. If HR then does nothing to correct it once they have been apprised of the situation, well lets just say that those are the situations that attorneys who specialize in workplace litigation love.

Small business owners who ignore complaints of hostile work environments will pay dearly for their ignorance. Not your fault he's ignorant but he will need to be shown how expensive that ignorance is if something happens that he should have prevented.

Record what you can. Video is better than audio. Watch your arse and forge ahead, do your job, and keep your head down.

If someone assaults you in the workplace start planning on a big bonus.
