Harassment rears its ugly head in the modern workplace in a number of ways, and becomes illegal where (a) enduring it becomes a condition of continued employment, and (b) creates an intimidating, hostile, or abusive work environment.
Your employer is automatically liable under the law in the event that you are harassed by your supervisor. But, in order for your employer to be held liable for the hostile work environment created by the supervisor, your legal team must be able to demonstrate that the employer either was, or should have been, aware of the harassment.
However, even if your employer cannot be found liable for the supervisor’s harassment of you, the supervisor can be held liable for their actions as an individual.
