How can an employee report a supervisor who is intimidating him?

It would be a good idea to ask a manager if the company has a grievance procedure. It would also be a good idea to keep a note of the incidences - when and where they happened, exactly what happened (physical and/or verbal) and anyone else who may have witnessed the intimidation. Then a manager can be presented with specific events, and discuss specific details of the supervisor's behaviour.
