Hostile Work Environment

Harassment in the workplace can cause uncomfortable situations for employees. This discomfort can cause you to feel intimidated by your harasser, or intimidated to speak up. No one enjoys working in a hostile or abusive environment, and no one should have to endure it.

Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, you are protected as an employee in such an environment. If you are experiencing any behavior resulting in a hostile work environment and your employer chooses to ignore it, please contact us today.

(I would check to make sure that is the right Act to reference. Online, what I see is Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is a federal law that prohibits employers from discriminating against employees on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, and religion.- searched and could not find association with this Act and harassment)
