My boss took me out for a reward dinner at applebees. He was on the clock, and drove there in the company vehicle. While there, he was extremely loud and obnoxious. He began buying drinks for my coworker and I. He started calling us "pussy's" to get us to drink more. I wanted to leave on more than one occasion but each time was verbally harrassed into staying and drinking more. When we left he left in his company vehicle (intoxicated), and I left in my car. On my way home I got pulled over for a DUI. I am not dismissing my own actions...but I am inquiring about his conduct.
There is no action for coercion. However, you need to report this conduct to the company in writing and keep a cc.
