Default Boss insulting employees

Can a boss be fired or legally sued for calling an employee a "fuc*ing fat hog", in front of a dozen other employees?
And the person he said it about is indeed quite heavy but she still her does her job 100%.
All of us that were there are furious over this.

Obesity is a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act according to the EEOC and the US District Court.

Refer your co-worker to the following resources:

https://www.eeoc.gov/eeoc/newsroom/release/4-10-12a.cfm

https://www.courtlistener.com/opinio...velopment-inc/

What she does with that information is up to her.

Options include a written complaint to the President of the Company (not HR) with reference to those resources, or filing a complaint directly to the EEOC. Or both.

I wish to inform you that you may contact the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) 800-222-0364 Room S3214 TTY 888-262-7848. It is managed by the Safety and Health Center (SHC) of the Department of Labor (DoL). Alternatively, you may contact the EEOC or an attorney for guidance in this matter.
