What Defines A Hostile Work Environment?

A number of laws protect employees from hostile work environments, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. But, simply being unhappy at work or having a disagreement with an employer does not constitute a hostile work environment.

It can be difficult to prove that your employer is not taking action to correct a hostile work environment. You may be genuinely experiencing a hostile work environment if you notice or are subject to:

  • Unwanted sexual advances
  • Offensive comments
  • Racial slurs or other racial commentary
  • Discussion of an employee’s religious beliefs in a negative manner
  • Commentary regarding age
  • Uncomfortable or inappropriate physical contact
  • Inappropriate jokes

A hostile work environment is considered to be in place when harassment or discrimination becomes sustained and is so intolerable that a reasonable person would have no choice but to quit.
