Anna M. Hall v. City of Chicago, 7th Cir., No. 11-3279, March 29, 2013

Articles Discussing Case:

Ostracism and petty mistreatments may collectively rise to the level of hostile work environment.

Ogletree Deakins • April 30, 2013
A female plumber on “light duty” in the City of Chicago’s Department of Sewers filed a lawsuit alleging that because she was female, her supervisor assigned menial work to her, prohibited her coworkers from interacting with her, and subjected her to alleged “verbal violence.” While the district court viewed each of those actions individually and found that none constituted hostile work environment under Title VII, the7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the lower court’s summary judgment in favor of the City, and determined that the case should move forward to trial, on the basis that a jury could find that the collective treatment could rise to the level of hostile environment.
