There are many facts that a lawyer would need to know in order to advise you on whether you have some sort of legal recourse for this "targeting". These would include: 1. What is it that you are being targeted for. What is the STATED reason for your boss coming down on you, and is this consistent with what you believe to be the ACTUAL reason 2. Do you suspect that you are being targeted because of your race Ethnicity Gender Religion Sexual orientation Disability(ies) of some sort Age. 3. Are you in a union. Is there some sort of collective bargaining agreement. Do you have a formal contract with your employer, or is this an "at will" arrangement. 4. Have you reported any safety violations. Any violations of any laws. If so, then perhaps this "targeting" of you is in retaliation for reporting these things, and it might give you a basis for legal action. 5. What does this "targeting" consist of Verbal harassment. Being assigned to less desirable tasks. A loss in shifts or pay. Something else. Those are among the questions I would have to get answers to in order to help you figure out if you have any legal recourse.
