Federal and State law prohibit harassment based on membership in a protected class (race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age (40 and over), disability, sexual orientation or retaliation).
Harassment includes unwelcome verbal or physical conduct related to your membership in a protected class, unwelcome conduct affecting a term or condition of employment and/or having the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with your work performance and/or creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment. Harassment, in the worst cases, can even include physical assault.
It is unlawful to retaliate against an employee who has filed a charge of discrimination because of harassment. “Employees have a right to be free from retaliation for their opposition to discrimination or their participation in an EEOC proceeding by filing a charge, testifying, assisting, or otherwise participating in an agency proceeding.”
