I was standing next to 3 loaded pallets in our loading dock area. When I didn't look in the direction he wanted me to he took both hands Of his hands and grabbed my head and turned my head left then to the right without my approval. I didn't say or do anything afterwards the incident. I also had witnesses watch this happen.
If you are uncomfortable with your boss's behavior, I suggest you approach him and let him know. If he shrugs it off or continues to act in that way. Go to HR or his boss. A person has no right to put his hands on you but you need to confront the issue. If it continues after you take these steps, I would get an attorney involved.
This is not legal advice and should not be relied on as such. Before taking any action, you should consult an employment attorney.
Have you reported this to Human Resources or filed a complaint with management about your boss’s behavior? No one has the right to lay his or her hands on you without your permission. You can approach your boss and tell him that you were not comfortable with what happened. If the behavior continues you should report the matter to the appropriate department. If your employer has a policy regarding harassment you should follow the procedures therein to formally document what has happened. If no action is taken and/or you feel that the action taken was not sufficient you can contact an employment attorney to discuss the specific facts of your case to determine your legal rights.
