I’m an accounting clerk who is getting bullied by one of my co-workers with whom I work together on different projects. When I complained to the boss, he said that I need to suck it up and stop complaining. He did nothing about it. I hate going to work, although I have a passion for my field and like the other people on my team. I’m afraid to go to HR for fear of backlash. I am so stressed and cannot afford to quit.
I understand workplace bullying is considered illegal. What can I do about this work situation?
