Depending upon the nature of the harassment and insults, you might have a civil complaint for intentional infliction of emotional distress. If you are among the protected classes because of race, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, etc., you might have a discrimination claim, as well. Can you address the problem with someone higher than the new manager rather than lose the account?
