"We are understaffed and the yelling has been going on for days. He slams stuff and curses to himself while he walks away from us. I don’t even know where to start. Is there anything I can do. My coworker just walked out for the day because she close to breaking down from all the unnecessary yelling. What do I do? There’s no HR it’s a small business and we are the only 2 employees. Please help"
