  • A single incident of unlawful and inappropriate touching is enough to create a hostile work environment. In one case a plant foreman forced a victim’s face against his groin in the presence of male co-workers, forcing her to leave crying while they laughed.
  • A female employee who is exposed to daily sexual banter, sexual innuendo, crude jokes, posters of a sexual nature and demeaning comments regarding her body and clothes is a victim of sexual harassment.

How can a victim be harassed at work by a non-employee?

Employers may be responsible for the sexual harassment of a non-employee if the employer or supervisor knew or should have known of the harassment, failed to take immediate and appropriate action, and had some degree of control over the non-employee.

Who can report a sexually hostile work environment?

The victim of sexual harassment does not have to be the person at whom the unwelcome conduct is directed. The victim may be someone who is affected by bad conduct when it is merely directed at another person. The victim does not have to be the opposite sex of the harasser.

How bad must a hostile work environment get before I should complain?

An employee should notify an employer whenever they reasonably believe themselves to be the victim of harassment. If the conduct is severe, it may be enough that it occurred only once. If the conduct is less severe, but occurred over an extended period of time, that too may be sufficient.

What is a hostile work environment?

A hostile work environment occurs when unwelcome conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work performance, creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment.
