Workplace harassment, help!
I’ve been working at this job for a couple of years now. I’ve always gotten along with everyone there, despite that fact that I’m the only girl working for the company. Recently a new employee was hired. He is upset that I have the privelige of performing certain duties at work, because I’ve been at the company longer, and he can’t. He has been talking about me behind my back to other employees saying that I am not doing my job correctly and making condescending remarks about me. He is now in this power struggle with me and now he’s doing my job and forcing me to do his. I’m very upset about this and I don’t know what to do. If I go to the boss, who is sexist, I just know he will turn this into a sexist problem, i.e “this is what happens when I hire women drama.” No one else is standing up for me against him in the workplace even though almost all of the other employees can’t stand this guy. He is arrogant and he won’t do certain jobs because he thinks they are beneath him. To add to the issue he’s got anger problems and is currently on probation for acting out on his anger. How do I handle this situation?
