The Workplace: Where is it?

The definition of workplace means more than the four walls of a building. Workplace bullying, harassment, discrimination and violence can occur anywhere the business of the company is conducted - this includes places such as social functions, conferences, parking lots, and anywhere outside of the workplace, if the discrimination and harassment has, or could have, workplace repercussions.

Workplace Harassment

The basic legal definition of harassment is: "Unwelcome, unwanted or offensive conduct based on or because of an employee's protected ground of discrimination."

Examples of workplace harassment include:

  • An employee repeatedly addresses coworkers with derogatory comments or stereotypes related to their race or religion. The employee calls a coworker wearing a turban, "Towel Head", calls a Hispanic coworker, "Beaner", and calls a Jewish coworker "Cheap Skate".
  • An employee tries to get a coworker to resign by spreading untrue, malicious gossip about the coworker, because of the coworker’s disability. Often people accused of harassment think that they are being funny or suggest that they are just joking but the fact of the matter is the intentions are irrelevant. The negative impact on the person being harassed and the harmful effects on the workplace are how harassment and its effects are measured.
