Your employer can only be held liable for creating a hostile workplace if the hostility is directed at your race, color, religion, national origin, disability, genetics, age or sex, or if it arises as a form of retaliation in violation of a discrimination law. If your boss is just an a_hole, you have no recourse. Find another job and take down the company server on your way out.

A person faced with a boss like that could indeed have no choice but to quit to save herself.

So in that instance the person is really forced out; that is a claim that can be made. If she

is not forced out because of some protected class she should still be able to pursue the

employer. She just should make sure someone there in a position to do something about it

knew but did nothing or did not resolve it and the harassment continued.
