    Re: Can I sue my employer for undo stress or Emotional Stress?

    I would consider getting out of that work environment.
    It sounds like a very unpleasant place to work.

        Labor laws are always expanding (for better or for worse) in the US.
        Also you are allowed to take medical leave if the problem is so severe as to interfere with your work.

          What is the actual law about using extreme profanity at work?
          Can a employer or boss legally use profanity despite employee requests NOT to do so.

            Can an employer use the f word at work repeatedly, is that legal/ or illegal?

              There is nothing illegal about it per se.
              Due to a recent promotion, I should now be referred to as Major Obvious.

              I would not be trying to provide information and knowledge if I did not sympathize.

              Some days it is just not worth chewing through the restraints to face life.

                I think making us work at a factory with no proper social distancing is emotional stress and they should be sued for that.
                Why does the government not shut 'em down?

                    If you don't like your working conditions the answer is simple. Quit.

                      GOP coronavirus bill allows employers to sue workers


                      A GOP coronavirus bill contains a double whammy for workers. First, it makes it more difficult for workers to sue for contracting COVID-19 at work by requiring the employees to show—by clear and convincing evidence—that reckless behavior by their employer is what exposed them to the coronavirus. Only actual damages would be allowed, except in cases of “willful misconduct,” and then the punitive award couldn’t exceed actual damages. Second, the bill would allow employers to sue workers who make a “meritless” offer to settle out of court. Punitive damages would be allowed in the employer suits
