I contacted HR and asked them to help, I felt I was working in a hostile work environment

You’re in a no win situation. The same thing happened to me when I was working in management at a bank. I contacted HR and asked them to help, as I felt I was working in a hostile work environment, and asked what I needed to do. I asked if I should tape record how they were speaking to me, and HR said absolutely not, it’s illegal, and with that, they contacted my immediate bosses, including the higher up Regional Manager, and told them I threatened to record conversations. With that said, my life was even worse after reaching out for help. I even notified the EEOC when they made inappropriate comments about a health issues I have (MS) and told me my sickness will always hold me back. Which is completely illegal, but their attorneys fought it and the report I submitted was dismissed, since it was their word against mine. After 6 years of complete misery,(staying due to bills, food, etc) I finally gave them the long awaited middle finger and walked out. I didn’t have a job to go to, and no plans, but I knew for once I was taking up for my self. It was the scariest thing I’ve ever done, but well worth it! This world is made to accommodate big companies, and crap on the small people who work the hardest. You need to go online at night and find another job ASAP as it will NEVER get better, trust me, been there done that, and it broke me down as a person. I’m now at a great company, and my health is better and I’m living a happy stress free life. God will lead you in the right direction, but you have to take up for yourself. Go on LinkedIn, go to monster.com, do whatever you have to, but you need to get out of there ASAP.
