Do I have a valid claim against my employer?

If you are being harassed in the workplace by another employee, the first step you need to take is to report the incident to your boss as soon as possible. Your boss will then have the responsibility to file a report and to take action to stop the harassment. If this is failed to be done and the harassment continues, you may be able to take action against your employer.

If you are being harassed by your boss, report the incident to the HR department.

What can I do if my work environment is hostile?

Workplace harassment typically involves serious and persistent threats, offensive jokes, and slurs about a protected classification. Harassment is not typically classified as a one-off comment in bad taste. The difference between these two circumstances will allow you to determine if you are truly a victim of workplace harassment. Protected classifications include the following:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Disability

If you believe that you are a victim of workplace discrimination, take the following steps:

  1. Collect as much evidence of the harassment incidents as possible. This may include emails, text messages, and other communication that clearly depicts harassment.
  2. Speak with your boss if you are being harassed by another employee.
  3. If the harassment is coming from your boss, speak with the HR department.
  4. If you do not have an HR department, it is important that you retain the services of an experienced employment law attorney who will work to protect your rights as an employee.
