I don't see a question here. If you are suggesting that you were unlawfully battered and have suffered some sort of injury as a result, you are living in a fantasy world. If you do not enjoy your workplace or cannot tolerate your seemingly horrible boss, now is the time to start looking for a new job elsewhere.


Unless she bruised you or broke a rib, you do not really have a WC problem. Even if she did bruise you or hurt your feelings, you do not have a strong WC problem. If you are unhappy with the environment, the best choice for you is the procurement of a better job at a better company. Everything else is going to be more trouble than reward.
