Gender-Based Hostile Work Environments
When gender discrimination is allowed to persist in the workplace, it may become impossible for some employees to perform even their most basic job functions. Under most circumstances, an employer will either directly participate in a hostile work environment or, otherwise, be knowledgeable of those who are directly participating in its existence. As such, it may be possible to hold an employer responsible for the role he or she played in the creation and persistence of a hostile work environment.
Aspects of a Hostile Work Environment
While it is unacceptable to discriminate against anyone for their gender under any circumstance, there is legal recourse for those who are made subject to systematic gender discrimination in the workplace, including:
- Persistent use of derogatory remarks based upon a person’s gender
- Discernible, patterned preference of one gender over another
- Offensive behavior or gestures that target a particular gender over a period of time
