How Do You Prove a Hostile Work Environment?
A work environment is usually considered hostile when inappropriate or offensive behavior occurs persistently or severely in the workplace. An isolated incident can be considered a hostile work environment if the behavior was extremely serious. This inappropriate or offensive behavior is generally any unwelcome conduct based around someone’s:
- National origin
- Sexual orientation
While annoyances and petty slights may be difficult to deal with at work, they don’t usually constitute the legal requirement for a claim.
