Hostile Work Environment
Harassment in the workplace is not limited to sexual harassment. A hostile work environment is a form of unlawful discrimination and can arise from harassment based on your sex, race, national origin, religion, age, or disability. When an employer subjects an employee to harassment and/or discrimination based on his or her membership to one of these protected classes to such a degree that it interferes with the employee’s ability to complete his or her job duties and the employee fears going to work each day, the employer may have constructed a hostile work environment.
Keep in mind that not all workplace abuse necessarily reaches the level of constructing a hostile work environment. If you feel that your employer is subjecting you to severe and/or pervasive abuse based on your status as a member of a protected class, contact Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C., to set up a free consultation with an experienced Pennsylvania employment lawyer regarding your potential hostile work environment claim or call to make an appointment 215-569-1999.
