Unfortunately, there are situations in which employers do not violate specific discrimination laws while still creating a hostile work environment for an employee.
If you have received threats, intimidation, offensive language or name calling, you may have grounds for a lawsuit, as well as if the actions of co-workers make you dread coming to work.
Rule R477-15 of the Utah Administrative Code prohibits all types of harassment in the workplace, including conduct which is unwelcome, pervasive, demeaning, ridiculing, derisive, or coercive, and results in a hostile, offensive, or intimidating work environment.
Equally important, the verbal or physical conduct at issue must be based on a protected category such as race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
Its severity or pervasiveness must also be of such a nature that a reasonable person would find it intimidating, hostile or offensive.
