In part based on the principle that legal persons are simply organizations of natural persons, and in part based on the history of statutory interpretation of the word "person", the US Supreme Court has repeatedly held that certain constitutional rights protect legal persons ( such as corporations and other organizations). Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad is sometimes cited for this finding because the court reporter's comments included a statement the Chief Justice made before oral arguments began, telling the attorneys during pre-trial that "the court does not wish to hear argument on the question whether the provision in the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution , which forbids a State to deny any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws, applies to these corporations. We are all of the opinion that it does."
YOU MIGHT HAVE THE RIGHT TO FILE CHARGES WITH OTHER AGENCIES – It all depends on the reason that the hostile environment is occurring. For example, if the hostile environment is Retaliation for making an OSHA report about unsafe working conditions, then OSHA might take your complaint about the retaliation as well. If your problem arose from an ERISA-qualified workplace benefit, such as a medical or pension benefit plan, the Department of Labor might take your complaint about discrimination or retaliation arising from your benefit-related problem. Also, some of the Whistleblower laws provide detailed complaint procedures for retaliation.
