Harassment is a form of employment discrimination that violates both Federal and State law.
Offensive conduct may include but is not limited to, offensive jokes, slurs, epithets.
Harassment is the unwelcome conduct based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age, or disability. Harassment becomes unlawful when it 1) becomes a condition of continued employment, or 2) when the conduct is so severe or pervasive that it creates an intimidating, hostile, or abusive work environment or name-calling, physical assaults or threats, intimidation, ridicule or mockery, insults or put-downs, offensive objects or pictures, and interference with work performance.
Anti-discrimination laws also prohibit retaliation against an employee for filing a discrimination charge or opposing employment practices that they reasonably believe discriminate against individuals.
