All you can really do is make a complaint to your supervisor and hope that the problem goes away.  It is unfortunate that you are in this situation.  Is there any way for you to transfer to a new branch/store?  Managers should not act like that and i am sure their conduct violates the corporate employee conduct guidelines.  Try reporting it to the regional person again and ask if you need to take it hire up the ladder to fully address your concerns here.  If the regional manager is smart, that person will deal with this for you so they dont look bad to corporate.  Good luck and make sure the letter is politely written.
