Did you know that hostile work environment cases involve more than just sexual harassment? In fact, hostile environment harassment can be alleged based on any protected category: sex, race, color, national origin, religion, age, disability, genetic information, or reprisal.
Join FELTG Executive Director and attorney at law Deborah Hopkins as she discusses the world of hostile environment harassment in the federal government. In addition to covering the most recent cases – disability, transgender and religious harassment are the hot topics of 2017 – she’ll help you understand the differences between tangible employment actions and hostile work environment allegations.
She’ll also discuss:
- Nature of the conduct and the “unwelcome” requirement
- Which categories are protected – and which are not
- The “sufficiently severe or pervasive” requirement
The conversation will end with a discussion on agency and supervisor liability and prevention techniques. Your agency really can’t afford to miss it.
