Federal Government Employee Being Bullied
I've been with the Feds for 14 years (including 4 years in the military). In my first 4 years with my current agency I received Sustained Superior Performance Wards TWICE. Coming out to the field office five years ago, it was clear from day one these folks didn't want me here.
Recently my boss has joined the mob of 15. My boss blames me for the issues I'm trying to deal with. When I first brought it to him, he did nothing! Over the last several years it has gotten so bad my depression, panic attacks, service connected disability and PTSD has taken over my life. I don't sleep. My wife and small child are victims. I have nowhere to turn.
I've spoken with an attorney who specializes in Fed Employment Law. She said I have nothing actionable. I cannot quit or find a another job. I NEED HELP!! I'm afraid to contact EEOC or my department. What should I do? Thinking of contacting the ACLU. I read somewhere that 35% of all employees are bullied.
