Hello, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today. I bring nearly 20 years of experience in various legal disciplines.Hostile
work environment actually has a very specific legal meaning which isn't as broad as most people think.
It only refers to discrimination
directed at you based on your race, religion, gender, age, disability or FMLA
use. It does not refer to any other treatment which might be considered generally harassing. Generalized harassment is actually not illegal in this country.
Regrettably, that means that your employer's HR can terminate both of you based on any further issues between you. In fact, the employer could even legally side with the person doing the harassing UNLESS it is harassment based on race, religion, gender, age, disability or recent FMLA.
I do wish I could tell you differently here, but unfortunately, without an allegation of discrimination HR can fire either or both of you.
