Many California employees have the wrong idea about what a hostile work environment constitutes in the workplace. An unpleasant boss or superior does not make a
hostile work environment! A
hostile work environment is created when an individual is discriminated against by the employer or superior and the
discrimination changes or alters the work environment for the employee. If an individual is harassed and or discriminated against in the workplace based on the employees race, age, or gender than the most likely result is that employee would also have a legal claim for the creation of a
hostile work environment in the workplace.
We receive a large amount of phone calls from current and former California employees that believe that they have a claim for the creation of a hostile work environment. Most of these employees don't have a claim they simply just don't understand the legal requirements for a claim of
Hostile Work Environment.
The best way to determine whether you have a claim for the creation of a hostile work environment is to call our office and talk to our
wrongful termination lawyer or call a
attorney in your area that handles
wrongful termination matters.
