Hostile Work Environment
Are you working in an environment that is uncomfortable or difficult due to another persons behavior? Watch this video by experienced Phoenix employment lawyer James Green to learn about what you can do about a hostile work environment.
I recently had a client contact me and tell me that they felt like they were in a hostile work environment. Now, a hostile work environment is a term that is often misused. People don’t understand what that means. For example, if you’re called a bad name one time, or your supervisor picks on you because you’re not getting your work done on time, or even a couple of one-off comments here and there. That’s not necessarily a hostile work environment. To be a hostile work environment, there has to be conduct that, defined by the law, is substantially severe or pervasive, to alter the terms and conditions of your employment. That is a very high standard to reach.
