A hostile work environment is an environment in which an employee feels harassed, intimidated or oppressed, and his or her ability to work is subsequently affected. Lewd comments by a co-worker, offensive conduct by a manager, or mistreatment or humiliation by a co-worker are all examples of conduct that may create a hostile work environment. If the employer fails to correct the situation after it has been reported, the employer may be held responsible.
