Highlight

The time for filing a claim for an unlawful employment practice under Title VII or the Human Rights Act depends on whether the claim raises discrete discriminatory or retaliatory acts or alleges a hostile work environment.
Discrete discriminatory acts are not actionable if time-barred, even when they are related to acts alleged in timely filed charges, and each discrete discriminatory act starts a new period for filing charges alleging that act.
A hostile work environment claim is composed of a series of separate acts that collectively constitute one unlawful employment practice. In deciding whether a hostile work environment exists, a court looks to all the circumstances, including the frequency of the discriminatory conduct; its severity; whether it is physically threatening or humiliating, or a mere offensive utterance; and whether it unreasonably interferes with an employee's work performance.
Intentional infliction of emotional distress requires proof of (1) extreme and outrageous conduct that is (2) intentional or reckless and causes (3) severe emotional distress.
A plaintiff claiming negligent infliction of emotional distress must also show bodily harm.
