I was on a call with my manager and my mentor discussing a work related deliverable. As my manager was screen-sharing, I noticed she and my mentor were discussing my performance in a negative way and using "headbanging" and "laughing" emoticons. When I brought it to my manager's attention, she closed the IM and said, "that's bad." I felt so bad I cried and could not work the rest of the day. She had been rude and mean to me in the past so I contacted her manager and HR.....again. Is this illegal?
