Barton Barton & Plotkin | Maurice Ross
You cannot automatically sue merely because your supervisor yelled at you. Indeed, employers are permitted to discipline employees for poor or substandard performance, and they are entitled to threaten employees with suspension or termination. I would need a lot more information before I could tell you that you should consider bringing legal proceedings. If you want to pursue this matter, you will need to retain employment counsel to review your case and advise you based on understanding all the relevant facts and details.

Yes, you may sue, but you are not likely to win much - if anything, unless there was a physical touching. The law is not always the best remedy. I would have suggested that you work with your human resources department, but that is not an option, since you quit. Since you did not do this, you likely will not be eligible for unemployment compensation.
