What is a Hostile Work Environment?

A hostile work environment is a general term used to describe ongoing negative or offensive conduct that hinders an employee’s ability to work. However, the negative behaviors must meet certain criteria set by federal and state laws.

Working conditions are considered hostile when there is a presence of harassment, discrimination, or retaliation based on:

  • Disability
  • Marital status
  • Religion or Creed
  • Race or color
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender identity
  • Ethnicity
  • Pregnancy status
  • Age
  • Nationality
  • Gender expression

While not every unpleasant workplace is illegal if you have experienced any of the above behaviors consistently while on the job, you may have grounds for civil action. Hostility in the workplace can affect men, women, and members of the LGBTQ community. It is imperative to speak to an experienced hostile workplace attorney to discuss your unique situation.

How Can a Hostile Work Environment Affect Employees in California?

Hostile work environments can impact employees in a variety of ways. Some common signs of a toxic work environment include:

  • Employee burnout
  • The frequent conflict between co-workers
  • Co-worker statements that they feel underappreciated or underpaid
  • High employee turnover
  • Absenteeism

According to a study conducted by the National Health Interview, 7.8% of employees in the U.S. experience hostile working conditions. Overall, employees in the protective service industry experienced the most hostility at work.

How Sexual Harassment Can Create a Hostile Work Environment

Sexual harassment at work can contribute significantly to a hostile workplace. Men, women, and non-binary persons feel they will risk losing their jobs or a chance at a promotion if they do not comply with unwanted sexual attention.

The #MeToo movement has continued to reveal the prevalence of sexual misconduct. According to a study published in the Human Rights Library, 90 to 95% of sexual harassment victims suffer debilitating stress reactions, including:

  • Clinical anxiety
  • Clinical depression
  • Sleep disorders
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Headaches
  • Extreme weight loss or gain

If you are experiencing sexual harassment at your place of work, contact Mancini & Associates as soon as possible to discuss your options.
