    TOXIC WORK ENVIRONMENT - when you have a boss who says about your three adopted kids from foster care and having significant trauma and whereas you want to participate in their therapy: [SIC] "your f'ed up kids are none of the companies concern". And when you raise this issue to HR and their only concern is to protect the interest of the company and starts retaliating against you.
