You need to contact an attorney who does employment law and who represents workers. Most of us will talk to you on the phone for free.
Unfortunately, harassment and bullying are not unlawful in the workplace unless you can prove that the conduct is motivated by your membership in a protected class of people. Otherwise, your supervisor can harass and bully you and HR has no duty to stop it.
If you believe it can be established that the harassment and bullying is unlawfully motivated it would be prudent for you to locate and consult with an experienced employment law attorney as soon as possible to explore your facts and determine your options. I would suggest you look either on this site in the Find a Lawyer section, or go to www.cela.org, the home page for the California Employment Lawyers Association, an organization whose members are dedicated to the representation of employees against their employers.
Most employment attorneys who practice this area of law work offer a free or low cost consultation in the beginning and then, if the matter has merit and value, will usually agree to work on a contingency basis, meaning you can hire an attorney without paying any money until the matter results in a positive outcome for you. Many advance all the costs of the litigation as well. Do not let fear of fees and costs keep you from finding a good attorney.
Good luck to you.
