Employees are Protected from a Hostile Workplace
Going into a workplace where every single day involves some form of harassment can negatively affect the wellbeing of a person.
Employees are protected under California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) against workplace harassment based on their gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, color, national origin, physical or mental disability, medical condition, genetics, marital status, age or veteran status.
Employer Liability of a Hostile Workplace
If the employer has knowledge of a non-supervisor employee’s harassment of another employee and fails to do something about it, the employer may be liable. Typically, an employee reports the harassment to a supervisor and the employer fails to take steps to prevent the harassment.
However, when a supervisor, manager, or owner creates a hostile workplace, the employer may be liable for harassment even if it does not have knowledge of the harassment.
In certain cases, an employer may be liable for harassment by a non-employee too.
What Can an Employee Do?
- Most employers have an employee handbook that describes the reporting procedures for reporting harassment. The handbook may have information about who to report the harassment to and how to report it.
- Once the harassment has been reported in writing, you can save a copy of the report you made.
- Save any information you have regarding the harassment.
- If you are unable to receive help from the employer, you should contact a Los Angeles employment law attorney.
