Q. What factors determine whether an environment is “hostile”?

A. To prove a hostile work environment, a harassment victim must show that he or she was subjected to unwelcome harassing conduct that was so severe or pervasive that a reasonable person in his or her position would find the work environment hostile or abusive (to the point that it interferes with job performance), that he or she in fact believed the work environment to be hostile or abusive and that management knew or should have known of the abusive conduct.
