Same Standard

The Supreme Court of New Jersey held that the Appellate Division had erred in granting judgment nov to the defendant in a claim of religious-based hostile work environment brought by a Jewish police officer. The trial jury had found the hostile work environment but awarded no damages; both sides had appealed to the Appellate Division. The court here concluded that the standard of proof for such a claim was the same as for a claim of race or gender hostile work environment. The plaintiff had presented "sufficient evidence...[he had] suffered severe or pervasive harassment." (Mike Frisch)
