I work for a smaller county in WA state. The office I work in is wrought with nepotism, hostility in the workplace, harrassment and many cases of verbal abuse. I have documented many many pages of incidents and brought them to the attention of the county commissioner as per the employee handbook in reporting problems. He cussed me out not once, but TWICE! He has a huge interest in my place of employment and is also in kahootz (sp?) with the interim manager's son. I don't know where else to turn other than to the State Attny. General and I am so scared of black-balling myself for future jobs anywhere else. I have documentation from the first week I worked here and I've only been here 6 months! The first week I was here I was told to lie to the police! That manager has since been terminated, but they put another one in his place that is a tyrant. I haven't quit because jobs are scarce and money is very tight these days. I need to work, but I can't handle this much longer, I need some advice!
