Can my boss publicly humiliate me at work for being on public assistance in the past? 5 Answers as of September 17, 2013
I have worked at a doctor's office for 5 years. I was receiving public assistance when I started there so my boss knows that and she often talks badly about public assistance patients and then turns to me every time and says "no offense since you used to be on welfare insurance " in front of everyone. It's demeaning and I am no longer on it and was very embarrassed to be on it in the first place. I was in a tough spot with two kids and nobody.
