If you are an Employee at Will in Pennsylvania, you basically have no protection from being mistreated by your boss, or from being fired, if the reason for the boss's action is just plain old fashioned favoritism (of another employee) or dislike (of you).

I really like what they have to say, so I have posted it and hope that you find it helpful and informative too.
A brief synopsis of Mr. Henry's advice:
1. Determine if the boss is a jerk, or just a bad manager.
2. Determine if you are or may be the problem or part of the problem;
3. Do not expect "respect" from your boss; otherwise, you will often be disappointed, which in turn often will lead to additional problems.
4. Examine and implement "coping mechanisms."
5. Undertake tactics designed to bring you and your boss "closer together" (this often requires a little "humble pie." However, keep in mind that your "principles" do not pay the rent.)
Do Not Quit Your Job Without First Trying to Fix the Problem at Work
Mr. Henry suggests that, "if all else fails, quit." On this score I disagree. Never quit until you have a new job. If you quit because the boss is a jerk, you will almost assuredly NOT get Pennsylvania Unemployment Benefits.
