No employee should have to work in a hostile environment in which they are mistreated or harassed. Workplace environments are supposed to be free of discrimination and harassment, and employers are responsible for keeping their employees safe. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for employers to encourage discriminatory treatment of an employee, thus damaging the employee’s well-being. 

When an employee does not feel safe due to discrimination and harassment on the part of other workers or the employer, the employee may have a viable hostile work environment claim. If you are currently working in such an environment in Kansas City, Missouri and Kansas, contact a hostile work environment lawyer who can help you take the next steps in seeking justice.

What Is Considered a Hostile Work Environment in Kansas City? 

There are many reasons why an employee might feel threatened or treated unfairly; however, not all workplace negativity is considered a hostile work environment. The law prohibits discrimination against certain protected classes. The following classes are protected by law:

    • Race
    • Color
    • Sex
    • Age
    • Religion
    • National origin
    • Genetic information
    • Disability

Laws enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) prohibit discrimination against these classes in any workplace. Employees who experience intimidation, abuse, threats, or even inappropriate humor regarding any protected class in their workplace may have a case against their employer. If you are a victim of a hostile work environment, contact a Kansas City hostile work environment attorney as soon as possible.

Types of Offensive Behavior in Hostile Work Environment Cases 

Not all negative aspects of the workplace can be classified as a hostile work environment under the EEOC. As a result, some rude behavior, abrasive language, or bullying by an employer are legal unless they are directed at a protected class. The following are some examples of behavior that can create a hostile work environment case:

    • Racially offensive jokes
    • Unwanted advances
    • Slurs directed at someone’s religion
    • Humiliating one’s disability
    • Spreading rumors about someone’s sexuality
    • Intimidation
    • Physical assault or threats

These types of behaviors interfere with work performance, are humiliating to endure, and are highly offensive to the average person. Although no employee should have to deal with a hostile work environment, the reality is that some employees face this environment every day. If this is the case for you, know that you do not have to suffer in silence. Contact a hostile work environment attorney in Kansas City who can walk with you through this challenging process. 

What to Do If You Are in a Hostile Work Environment in Kansas City 

It can be shocking, and even devastating, to be in an environment where you are harassed constantly. Take the following information into consideration when building your hostile work environment claim.

Documentation

When you are a victim of abuse in your workplace, document everything. Include names, dates, locations, and times. The more information you document, the better it will be for your case.

Witness Statements

If other employees have witnessed the abuse, or if others are also being abused in a hostile work environment, obtain statements from such people. 

Report to Authorities

If you work for a large company, you will need to report these harassment incidents to your human resources department. Additionally, reporting to managers and supervisors is equally important to show that notice was given about the claim.

Work with an Experienced Hostile Work Environment Attorney

Going up against your employer is not easy. Having the proper representation behind you will ensure that your rights are properly protected.

Many factors determine whether the environment is hostile, including the severity and frequency of the abuse. An experienced hostile work environment attorney will understand this process and help victims seek justice for discriminatory actions against them.

I found out about Hollis Law Firm from an advertisement on TV... I really did not know what to expect, but this firm was amazing.

The Hollis staff did a great job answering questions!

Jason’s patience with all my questions throughout this rather long process was very reassuring. My many calls were always answered promptly and professionally by the Hollis staff. If Jason was not immediately available, he would always return my calls the same day or at the latest, the next day. The Hollis staff did a great job answering questions, but never guessed at answering. If they could not answer a question they quickly passed it on to Jason. Jason did a very good job of explaining the legal issues with my case, how the process worked, and what all my options were when applicable. Jason and everyone I spoke with at Hollis were always professional and seemed to genuinely care about me and my case. I felt very comfortable working with Jason and the Hollis Law Firm staff. I would be totally at ease recommending Jason and the Hollis Law Firm to anyone.
