My manager often walks up to my desk when I'm quietly working and says insulting things to me such as:
- How is your baby? Do you even know? Do you care?
- Why did you have a baby anyways?
In my country a working mother is a protected characteristic it falls under 'family status discrimination'.
There appears to be a huge range of behaviors that fall under bullying/harassment. I was told by the worker's compensation board that it's not bullying or harassment because it's not threatening to my personal safety and it's not in public so it's not humiliating.
Other definitions of harassment include any annoying, offending or distressing conduct. This was from other employment standards websites.
How can I arrive at an understanding of whether my manager is actually harassing me?
