Washington State recognizes more than a dozen protected classes. They include age, disability, race, religion, gender, military status, marital status, and sexual orientation. Unlawful discrimination based on any of these characteristics is, and should be, prohibited in the workplace. The same goes for harassment and retaliation. Behavior constitutes unlawful workplace harassment when enduring the offensive conduct becomes a condition of continued employment or the conduct is severe or pervasive enough to create a work environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, or abusive. It can be unwelcome conduct based on the targeted individual’s membership in a protected class or any conduct identified in company policy or employee handbook as unacceptable.
