FIGHTING TO PROTECT Orange County, CA EMPLOYEES’ RIGHTS
Employees throughout the nation are protected by federal laws and legislation against discrimination and harassment in the workplace.

A hostile work environment develops when an employee experiences any form of harassment that interferes with his or her work performance and/or creates an intimidating or offensive work environment.

California EMPLOYER RESPONSIBILITY AND LIABILITY
Employers are ultimately responsible for providing their employees with a safe and reasonable working environment. Although cases can become complex depending on the circumstances involved, employers are generally always liable for a hostile work environment when a supervisor or management employee are responsible for the harassment. Employers can also be held liable for a hostile work environment caused by a nonsupervisory employee when they knew, or should have known, about the harassment and failed to take any action to prevent or stop the conduct.
