Psychological harassment, do i have a case?
I worked at a bakery and deli for about 2 months, the first time my employer yelled at me was because I was unaware of a product sitting on the shelf in the back that needed to go out, because i was in the store fronting and checking if we needed any thing else to be put out. he had come down from his office, and taken me to the back where the product was, and then started yelling at me because they were not in the store, I felt very attacked and started to explain that i had not known they were there, and not known that they needed to be filled, he then continued to yell, stating I needed to do my job better, and had asked me in a very condisending tone how long i've worked there (which at the time was only about 3 weeks, 1 1/2 of which were training and that night was only the 3rd or 4th time i was closing alone). The next day I had apologized to him for acting out, he didn't apologize back for the way he talked to me, but he took my apology.
the next time he yelled, I was finishing a break in the deli part of the store, and the assistant manager was about to go on her break. She had finished bagging baggettes for a commercial order and had moved a table with the remaining baggettes next to the deli so i could finish bagging them for the store. The owner had then come down again, and started yelling at me, telling me i was not supposed to do them in that spot, and had asked me once again in a very condesending tone how many times i've done that job, ( I've only done that once or twice I told him, and every time I did it was in that spot) he then continued yelling at me, stating i was a liar, and that he's seen me do it before, in the other spot. I gave up the argument and moved the table back to where it had been before, and contined to bag the remaining baggettes, I was in tears and extreamely frustrated, he had then come back, and started to yell at me again, telling me I was doing it wrong, and needed to use a spatula to pull them apart, he had then asked me where the spatula was, and I told him that i had no idea ( I had done it once or twice using the spatula, but I was trained by the assistant manager that I didn't nessisarily have to use it if they come off the tray easily) He had then continued to yell and shout at me, and told me I have a bad attitude, and that I was a suppervisor and had to set an example for the other employees. I had told him I have never been treated like that ever at a place of employment, I then told him I was done, and i quit, i then put my uniform on the table and went into the girls change room, he had then came in and thrown my uniform at me and said i had signed a contract and needed to wash them, and then he had told me to quit crying and then in a very rude tone asked if i wanted to sit down and think about what i was doing, I said no, and I left.
I am now worried that he might withhold my check from me. and am also wondering if theyre is any kind of legal action i can take, He yells at all of his employees like that, and they are all 20 year old women, and he is about a 50 year old man.
