In regards to your hostile work environment question, the term "hostile work environment" is often misunderstood. While your situation sounds very unpleasant and frustrating, it most likely does not rise to the level of a hostile work environment as defined by the law. For you to have a hostile work environment claim, the mistreatment of you must be based on a protected characteristic such as your race, gender or religion. There are other requirements of such a claim as well but the threshold question is whether the treatment of you is motivated by your membership in that protected class. If you think that you are being discriminated against at your job because of your race, gender, religion, etc., you should contact an employment attorney in Kentucky.
