    What Is A Hostile Work Environment?

    Hostile work environment cases are more challenging than they may appear. For example, simple teasing, offhand comments, and isolated incidents are generally not actionable. Instead, victims must demonstrate that the misconduct is so severe or pervasive that it would be offensive to any reasonable person. Additionally, the victim must prove that the misconduct was due to discrimination.

    Sexual harassment is pervasive in many workplaces. You know it when you see it. It includes fondling, suggestive remarks, sexually-suggestive photos, and inappropriate jokes.

    If you’re experiencing sexual harassment, you should contact an Atlanta hostile work environment lawyer. Your lawyer can help you file an EEOC complaint with the Atlanta Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Once you file that charge, the EEOC will notify your employer. If the harassment doesn’t stop at that point, your lawyer will help you recover compensation for your losses.

    What Compensation Can I Recover?

    The employment lawyers at Allen & Scofield Injury Lawyers, LLC can help you recover the following damages:

    • Emotional distress damages: Victims may recover compensation for their pain and suffering.
    • Doctor’s therapy bills: Many hostile work environment victims require mental health treatment. Some victims are even hospitalized for stress-related conditions. Your lawyer can help you get reimbursed for those medical costs.
    • Lost pay and benefits: Some employers retaliate against employees for making hostile work environment complaints. For instance, they may fire or demote the employee. Or, they may deny the employee promotion opportunities. You can recover compensation for those harms.
    • Attorneys’ fees and costs are also recoverable.
