Another employee grabbed my arm twisted it and shook it, that same time i went to the boss and told him i wanted to make a report. He said he had to check the cameras to see whst happened and he would talk to me in the morning. In the morning he never talked to me and forgot all about it because that same employee he was promoting a week later. Now its almost 2 weeks after and this employee got a promotion and he wont give me the hr dept number
What you do is up to you, but some options would be to find another job, one that does not tolerate these actions in the workplace. Another might be to call the police and report the battery. As for the boss not taking any action, there is no claim on the facts you shared. If, however, the violence escalates there may be a claim depending on the injuries you sustain. All the best in making the decision that is right for you.
There is very little you can do because Florida is an “at will” state, which means employers are free to hire, transfer, promote, demote, suspend, reinstate, fire and rehire employees for any reason at any time, i.e., “at will.” The only thing employers cannot do is make any of these adverse employment decisions based upon an employee’s race, age, gender, disability, religion, marital status or national origin.
