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 has a very specific legal meaning. It does not, as it seems, refer to a workplace containing general harassment. Instead it only refers to a workplace that contains harassment based on race, religion, gender, age, disability or recent FMLA
use. This definition comes from the U.S. Supreme Court and isn't subject to any greater interpretation, unfortunately. (Likewise, "harassment" has the same narrow meaning in employment law
So, unless you can allege that the basis for this manager's treatment of you is your race, religion, gender, age, disability or FMLA use, you would not have a claim here.
If you can allege one of those motivations, then you should contact the Equal Employment Opportunity
Commission in your state, as they are the entity tasked with investigating and preserving such claims.
