Our Employment Law Attorneys Can Help You
Hostile work environment sexual harassment is unwelcomed conduct of a sexual
nature that is both severe and pervasive and affects working conditions
of the aggrieved employee. Stated another way, a hostile work environment
occurs when a person with authority or a co-worker engages in unwelcomed
and inappropriate sexual behavior which renders the atmosphere of the
aggrieved employee’s workplace hostile, intimidating or offensive
A number of factors which are considered by a court in determining if hostile
work environment sexual harassment occurred are, frequency of the offensive
conduct, severity of that conduct, whether it is physically threatening
or humiliating or a mere offensive utterance, and whether it unreasonably
interferes with an employee’s work performance.
