Hostile Work Environment Protected Categories

Our employment law lawyers understand that discrimination and harassment create a hostile work environment. Harassing behavior becomes unlawful when it is based on a legally protected category, such as:

  • Race
  • Age
  • Sex
  • Pregnancy
  • Physical or mental disability
  • Color
  • Religion
  • Sexual orientation

At Montgomery, Chapin & Fetten, we understand that a hostile work environment interferes with all aspects of your life. We will work with you to prove that the discrimination or harassment you have been receiving at work is severe or pervasive enough to be actionable in a court of law.

Actions That Can Create Hostile Work Environment Claims in New Jersey

There are many things that your co-workers or supervisor can do to create a hostile work environment. These include things such as physical touching, yelling, inappropriate jokes, insulting comments or undeserved reprimands. If your co-workers are participating in offensive conduct motivated by one of the above protected categories, then it is likely you have a claim. Our employment law attorneys will answer any questions you have and help you determine if you can file with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
