Alleged employee crimes could create hostile work environment

Florida should tread carefully when made aware of criminal accusations against an employee, especially when it involves co-workers. Taking a side could inflict a hostile work environment on one or more employees. A federal appeals court has sent a case illustrating this situation back to the trial court that originally heard the matter.

Appellate ruling helps to clarify harassment claims

Boca Raton workers who have faced discrimination or harassment may want to take heed of a court ruling that clarifies the meaning of the standard used to judge a hostile work environment. The lawsuit was initially dismissed by a lower court. An appeals court reviewed the case and reinstated the plaintiff's original charges. At issue was whether an isolated incident could meet the Supreme Court's "severe and pervasive" standard.

Experiencing hostility at a Florida workplace

The law protects employees from being treated differently because of their color, race, gender, national origin, age, veteran status, religious affiliation or because of a disability. Therefore, no employer should tolerate anyone at the workplace who severely harasses another employee for these reasons. If you believe you are subjected to a hostile environment at your Florida workplace and your boss has done nothing to stop it, you may be able to hold your employer accountable.

Labor Department revises gender discrimination rules for federal contractors
