What Constitutes a Hostile Work Environment?

Hostile, intimidating, offensive, or inhibiting conduct in the workplace is considered to be sexual harassment only if it is unwelcome. Unwelcome conduct is defined as conduct that is undesirable or offensive, and which has not be solicited or incited by an employee. There are a variety of types of conduct that can create a hostile work environment.

Conduct that creates a hostile work environment includes:

  • Sexual bullying
  • Sexual jokes
  • Inappropriate comments or sexual innuendo
  • Subjecting an employee to pornography
  • Belittling an employee based on his or her gender
  • Inappropriate touching

Managers, supervisors, and employees are all held accountable for conduct that qualifies as sexual harassment. Employers are ultimately responsible for ensuring that their workplace has an environment that is non-hostile for their employees. If you have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace, it is important to file a claim with your employer. Once notified, the employer must take steps to end the harassment, or they could be held liable.
