Claims of hostile work environment, retaliation, and discrimination, etc., are highly fact-sensitive situations that require more facts than can be reasonably supplied here. I would suggest you consult with an Employment attorney in your area to discuss your situation and legal options. Many attorneys who deal with these sorts of claims do offer free or low-cost initial consultations.

Your e-mail is very common in that it misconstrues the legal meaning of the phrase "hostile work environment." The federal anti-discrimination laws are not a general civility code. Rather, they are designed to protect individuals from discrimination and severe or pervasive harassment because of a protected characteristic like race, gender, age, national origin, religion, or disability. Your email does not describe any harassment on the basis of a protected characteristic, and without such evidence, there is no claim for a "hostile work environment." That said, you may want to consider consulting with a Workers' Compensation lawyer about your hand. I recommend you call Alex Wallach in Forest Park, GA.
