No one should have to endure a hostile environment in the workplace. Under the law, a hostile work environment occurs when supervisors, managers or co-workers create a pattern of offensive behavior. For instance, a pattern of offensive comments, threats, assaults, offensive pictures, or other behavior that would intimidate or offend a reasonable person is a hostile work environment. A single act of harassment, if very severe, can also constitute a hostile work environment. While you may be unsure whether you face a hostile work environment, a skilled employment attorney can provide the guidance you need.
