What are the elements of a hostile work environment claim?
- Hostile work environment is unlawful harassment that happens when unwelcome conduct is severe or pervasive enough to interfere with an employee’s ability to do their job. Offensive comments or conduct must relate to a characteristic protected under federal or state law, and the behaviors must typically continue over a period of time. A local employment attorney can explain whether the facts of your case might form the basis of a hostile work environment claim.
