Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for the question. I am sorry to read of this dilemma.
The company should let this person go
who is creating a hostile work environment
It can be pressed to do by a written notice that its refusal to act is exacerbating the situation
They should. But they have told my husband they fear they go will personally come after the HR director
Your husband of course doesnt have to tolerate this
He may lodge a complaint with the eeoc
He may also have local counsel reach out to negotiate terms including termination of the employee or a parting severance
Typically if legal and management are put on notice
especially by counsel
action is taken
which may avoid having to leave in protest
and thereby avoid prolonged proceedings
Should he hire a lawyer? He now feels the company is not protecting him and have been making him deal with this by himself.
He can make the effort first
if he has done so
or doesnt think company will listen
Having a lawyer reach out is not expensive and may accomplish the outcome he seeks
as it raises leverage
What is this issue called? Workplace Intimidation?
hosile work environment
unsafe working environment
I trust the answer is fast and clear.
Yes, thank you
