Unfortunately, it is not illegal for your boss to be a jerk. However, the law protects against employers who create hostile work environments because of an employee's protected category. An employer’s severe and continuous conduct that interferes with an employee’s ability to perform his or her job can create a hostile work environment, which is illegal. For example, if you are subjected to continuous sexual harassment at work that prevents you from completing your job duties, you could have a strong claim for a sexually hostile work environment.
