It would be in your benefit to discuss the specific details of your situation with a knowledgeable employment law attorney.

Are You Working in a Hostile Environment?

Although a mean boss or an annoying co-worker can contribute to a hostile work environment, they do not define a hostile work environment. There are legal criteria that must be met for you to pursue legal action.

The behavior of any individual in your workplace must make someone else uncomfortable or work difficult to complete. In addition, some or all of the following must be present in your work environment:

  • A violation of rights
  • A form or harassment
  • A form of discrimination
  • Behavior that solicits fear 
  • Behavior that causes a serious disruption in your ability to work
