Hostile and intimidating workplace
If ever we needed a better name for a legal concept, “hostile workplace” is it.“Hostile workplace” law isn’t at all what it sounds like: It’s not about your boss or your coworkers creating a hostile environment for you by being jerks.Knowing the rules and definitions of offensive conduct will help you word your grievance correctly when claiming you have been subjected to a hostile environment.Follow a standard business memo format when writing your grievance.
Follow the proper procedures when writing and submitting your grievance.
When wording your grievance, be specific about what’s going on.
It's not fair or sufficient to call someone a bully or state that you are being harassed, without offering evidence.
Share other thoughts as to what you would like to see happen.
If your grievance is substantiated, state that you want an investigation with corrective action.
