Can My Employer Harass Me?

Do you feel you are being harassed and treated differently from other employees at work? Have you been subject to abusive treatment, fired or forced to quit because of harassment? Was your employment terminated under suspicious circumstances? Was it undeserved? Are you a good employee? If the answer is “yes,” then you may be a victim of workplace discrimination.

At the Webb Law Firm, we understand how important your job is to you. If you were harassed or abusively treated, you are probably worried, confused and wondering if you have any recourse? Someone has just stolen your dignity, self-esteem, confidence, joy, happiness, and quality of life. At our Woodland Hills, California law office, we will help you through this process.

What is harassment and a hostile work environment?

Harassment or hostile work environment is an inexcusable, indefensible, and abusive form of employment discrimination. It is a violation of both Federal and California law. Yet, every day, people are treated this way.

When the hostility is motivated by discrimination, or in retaliation for reporting illegal conduct, or harassment because of your ethnicity, disability, age, gender or because of a similar trait, it is illegal. Where these illegal acts occur there is usually harassment occurring – they go hand in hand with harassment. Left unchecked it will flourish. Harassment can come in many forms, both verbal and physical and can be based on any of the following:

  • Religion
  • Sex or Gender
  • Pregnancy
  • National origin
  • Age
  • Disability (physical or mental)
  • Race
  • Retaliation for reporting various types of illegal conduct

Some examples of harassment that can create a hostile work environment:

  • Making offensive comments about an employee’s religious beliefs
  • Leering or staring in a suggestive manner
  • Uncomfortable or inappropriate touching
  • Telling inappropriate or sexual jokes
  • Making hateful comments
  • Using racially derogatory words or phrases
  • Offensive statements about a person’s mental or physical disability
  • Making critical comments about an employee’s age

If such behavior interferes with an employee’s work performance or their ability to do their job, then that harassment is considered to have created a hostile work environment.
