What Is a Hostile Work Environment?
A hostile work environment is a workplace where you feel uncomfortable, fearful or intimidated. A common example of a hostile work environment is sexual harassment. Inappropriate comments, lewd gestures and unwelcome touching can make a female employee unable to do her job effectively. Bullying, harassment and discrimination can also lead to a hostile work environment for men and women alike.
If you are feeling threatened, unwelcome or otherwise uncomfortable at work due to the hostile actions of coworkers or your employer, there are some steps you can take. Keep a record of all instances of inappropriate behavior by those who are making you uncomfortable. Be sure to follow your company's procedures by reporting the behavior to HR or your supervisor.
If you fear retaliation or receive no help from your employer, our attorneys can step in to help you through the process. We will stand by your side and fight for your right to a safe workplace.
