When you say file charges, are you talking about criminal charges? Probably not unless you are assaulted or battered.

You can not file criminal charges but you could file a suit an employment suit. You should consult with an employment attorney. However your chances are not great because as of yet you do not have any actual damages. You should look for a better job or accept the unpleasant work conditions. Louisiana is an at will employment state so the employer can terminate you for any reason as long as it is not a discriminatory reason. There are really no laws that require an employer to treat employees respectfully. If you do not like the way you are treated your option is to leave or discuss with the employer.
