Hostile Environment

A hostile work environment is any workplace where employees cannot perform their job duties due to the behaviors and treatment of colleagues and managers who are acting with hostility. Employees generally find that it is very hard to get work done in a hostile work environment because they feel intimidated, mistreated, and even threatened.
Hostility is not just an employer making rude comments or colleagues yelling at one another, it is the creation of a work environment that is so frightening that it causes employees serious stress and mental anguish. Additionally, a work environment may be categorized as hostile if employees are subjected to wrongful termination, sexual harassment or discrimination based upon their gender, race, national origin, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, or disability.

If you are currently in a hostile work environment or were recently employed at a workplace that was hostile in nature, you should contact our firm to provide counsel on the legal options that may be available to you. To get immediate insight into your case we encourage you to call us today at (855) 857-9691 to set up your free consultation. During your consultation, you can ask questions and receive reliable advice on your situation.

Can You File a Hostile Work Environment Claim?

One of the top questions people ask when they have worked in a hostile environment is “Can I file a claim?” According
to the law, you are eligible to file a claim if:

you are a member of a protected category
you were subjected to unwelcome physical or verbal conduct because of you are a member of a protected category
the hostile conduct was based upon your being a member of a protected category
the conduct affected the conditions or terms of your employment
Keep in mind, members of protected categories are generally: minorities, people age 40 and over, people with disabilities, or people of diverse religious beliefs or sexual orientation. If you would like to know if you are considered a member of a protected class because of your experience in a hostile work environment, we suggest that you take the time to speak with an employment law attorney from our firm.
