A workplace harassment / hostile work environment claim requires proof sufficient for a jury to find that the workplace was permeated with discriminatory intimidation, ridicule, or insult that was sufficiently severe or pervasive to alter the conditions of the victim’s employment and create an abusive working environment. Whether this standard is met requires consideration of the totality of the circumstances, including: (1) the frequency of the discriminatory conduct; (2) the severity of the conduct; (3) whether the conduct is physically threatening or humiliating, or a mere offensive utterance; and (4) whether the conduct unreasonably interferes with the employee’s work performance. Workplace harassment / hostile work environment claims should be based on protected classes, including but not limited to race, national origin, gender, disability, religion, or age.
