Discrimination based on a protected category such as race or sexual harassment may create a hostile work environment. An employee may also experience a hostile work environment after attempting or threatening to report illegal conduct, such as age discrimination. Organizations are liable for the actions of employees that create hostile work environments through their actions, or rather inaction. The best way to protect your organization from being sued for a hostile work environment is to work swiftly and efficiently to investigate the claims. Numerous issues may arise in the course of an investigation of a workplace complaint, particularly a complaint about acts that might violate Title VII, ADA, ADEA, or other equal employment opportunity laws.
