Are there laws for Hostile Work Environments in NJ?

Asked by Cooldil17 (482 points ) September 2nd, 2010

My friend just quit a job and he states that it’s because it was a very hostile work environment, tried to claim unemployment but it was denied because they say he did not exhaust all necessary resources before leaving. Do you know if there are any laws in NJ regarding a hostile work environment? What would you suggest he do?

Tell him to make a claim with the labor department.

Hopefully, you kept a journal as to when these things occurred, otherwise it’s one person opposition to another, Explain the abuse further. So far, it’s very vague.

How about some examples? like who said what, when, where and why.

What are you calling hostile work environment? If the employee has filed an EEOC claim and as a result is working in a hostile work environment, then yes, Federal law applies.
