I am not sure I follow. Pronouns are hard to determine who is who and that the situation is.

The boss’s boss threatened “it”, What is it?

“He wouldnt”- I assume this is boss’s boss, so who is the “she” in “she threatened”

I would document everything and go to HR. This way, HR will document everything also, possibly put the info. in her file, and give you advice on what actions to take next. HR will know what is considered unacceptable behavior, etc. and may confront your boss’s boss about it. Your boss is going to be confronted about her behavior either way, but I have learned this is the best option because once a bully is confronted, they usually back down. Good luck.

If you go to HR try and get just the facts down and leave out emotions to a point.  Like you can say they raise their voice at employees in front of co-workers (or others) and give examples but try not to get into too much he said/she said detail.  I would also never threaten a boss with going to HR, I would just do it, and it’s great you have the emails saved.

This is more clear. If its making the work environment uncomfortable for you, whether the boss is yelling at you or a coworker, you have the right to go to HR.

Before you go right down the incidents and dates that you can remember and give them that. Tell them you would like to know your options. Once you know what they are and their implications for you and those involved, you can decide what to do.
