Hostile Work Environment

Employment Lawyers

In California, a hostile work environment usually means that sexual harassment is present at the work place and is distracting to the victim’s day-to-day work activities. Sexual harassment may come in the form of touching, sexual jokes, inappropriate comments, and asking for sexual favors.

When a hostile workplace lawsuit is filed, the courts may consider the following factors:

  • Is the harassment based on a protected characteristic such as age, gender or race?
  • Frequency of the harassment
  • Severity of the harassment in the workplace.
  • Whether the harassment distracted the victim from their work activities.
  • Were there witnesses to the harassment?
  • Were the incidents of harassment reported to management and how did the employer respond.


Remember unpleasant work environments or unfavorable job responsibilities do not rise to a hostile work environment. Most employment in California, if not under contract, is employment-at-will which means your employer can fire you for no reason. But if you think you have been subject to an unwelcome sexual harassment then you may wish to file a hostile workplace lawsuit.
