"I was promoted to finance director at an auto dealership after being their used car manager for three years. This salesman had been at the dealership for 12 years and made a lot of money for them but he was consistently hostile, and not just to me.
He always used foul language to us in the showroom, screaming abuses like "You motherf...er" and worse. It happened plenty of times before but I held it in and towed the line. I'm not the only one he verbally abused but everyone else was afraid to complain. This salesman is just one of those guys who does anything he wants.

The labor judge ruled in my favor but I just received unemployment dated after June 20th. The dealership still owes me a few weeks of pay and I don't know if I will ever see that unless someone can help me. I believe that I made the right decision by standing up to this guy and filing a complaint, but at what price?
