SEXUAL HARASSMENT &
HOSTILE WORK ENVIRONMENT
Need to take action on a hostile work environment incident?
The basis for a sexual harassment claim, a "hostile work environment" is created where the presence of demeaning or sexual photographs, jokes, threats, or overall atmosphere is so pervasive as to create an intimidating and offensive work environment. Some companies have a detailed procedure for handling sexual harassment claims. If your company has such a procedure, you should follow it to the letter, taking note of any time limits set out in that policy. It is important, particularly in hostile environment cases, to make sure that your company's management is aware of the harassment.
