Employers in the state of Florida have the obligation of providing a safe atmosphere for all workers, regardless of race, age, disability, origin, color, religion or veteran status.
While most companies are successful in providing a safe work environment, this is not always the case. Instead, there are times when a hostile workplace develops, which can make life miserable on one or more employee.
In the event of a hostile workplace, the victim has several options. First and foremost, he or she should speak with the human resources department. This is the first step in making it known that something is going wrong. Furthermore, it is important to have your complaint on file.
Is my workplace hostile? This is the question many people wrestle with. Unfortunately, some don't understand what a hostile workplace is, so they continue to endure the abuse.
Do you feel that you have to endure harassment to keep your job? Has the situation become so bad that you are thinking about quitting? If you answered yes to either question, you may be in a hostile work environment.
Not only can this make life miserable on you at work, but it can carry over into your personal life as well. Nobody wants to work in a hostile environment, but some are put in this position. Additionally, there are those who think there is no solution.
