Legally, “hostile work environment” means more than having a bad boss or co-workers who do not treat you well. The law defines a hostile work environment as one in which any reasonable person would feel uncomfortable and unsafe. However, simply establishing that your work environment is hostile is not sufficient to support a legal claim.
A co-worker who repeatedly interrupts while you’re on the telephone and makes negative comments about the picture of your dog on your desk or a boss who yells all the time may create a work environment you experience as hostile, but they won’t give rise to a legal claim in the absence of unlawful discrimination.
Lawyers for Overtime Violations
United States law protects employees from overtime and wage violations. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes regulations concerning overtime, wage rates, child, labor, and company record-keeping. The FLSA states that any work past 40 hours in a workweek must be paid at one and one half (150 percent) of the employee’s base hourly rate.
