Understanding What Constitutes a Hostile Work Environment
A hostile work environment is created when an employee feels uncomfortable, scared, or distressed due to the behavior or conduct of their colleagues or supervisors. This behavior must be discriminatory in nature and could be based on race, gender, religion, age, nationality, disability, or sexual orientation.
Factors that may constitute a hostile work environment include:
- Frequent or pervasive unwanted comments, jokes, or insults
- Physical or verbal harassment
- Sexual harassment
- Interference with an employee’s ability to perform their job
- Retaliation for reporting inappropriate behavior
Remember, the behavior must be severe and persistent to a degree that a reasonable person would find the work environment intimidating, hostile, or abusive. If you believe that you are working in a hostile work environment, contact The Law Office of Andrew M. Dansicker for advice and potential representation.
