Harassment in the Workplace | Philadelphia Harassment Lawyers
Harassment creates a hostile work environment. Let’s examine what constitutes a hostile work environment.
Hostile Work Environment
A “hostile work environment” is a form of unlawful discrimination. Typically, people associate unlawful harassment with sexual harassment, but the law also protects you from harassment on the basis of your race, age, disability, sexual orientation, or your membership in any other protected class. In general, for a situation to be considered serious enough for unlawful harassment, the words or actions in question must be sufficiently severe or pervasive to make a reasonable person in your protected group believe that the work environment was different enough and that an unfriendly or abusive tone was created.
