The hostile work environment is a broad legal term that’s used to describe, what is often considered, a workplace that is considered difficult to go to or considered to be subject to some sort of severe and pervasive action that interferes with your ability to do your job. However, not all hostile work environments within the state of Oklahoma are considered unlawful.
If you’re subject to a hostile work environment because of certain criteria, that’s when an employment attorney such as myself can assist you in ensuring that your legal rights are protected.
The criteria that will ensure your protection is if you’re subject to a hostile work environment because of your age, your sex, your color, your race, your national origin, your disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, or because you’re retaliated against for making some sort of protected complaint.
