Hostile work environment usually refers to a situation where illegal discrimination is permitted or encouraged. Hostile work environment is some times misused to describe to an unpleasant or bad work place, but that is not the correct definition. Remember, not all harassment is illegal. Hence, not every hostile work environment is illegal.

A hostile work place is one where employees are being threatened by another and the employer isn't addressing the problem. Sexual harassment is an example. Derogatory comments about ones skin color, ethnicity, or handicap are other examples. Supervisor threatening punishment for not doing something for him. Normally you should report the occurrence to HR. Last resort complain to the EEOC.
