DEE v. VINTAGE PETROL., INC., B155741

Where an employee's supervisor asks her to lie about company business, asks her to secretly take a document from the desk of another supervisor, insults her and uses profanity in her presence, and makes a negative comment about her race, these circumstances are sufficient to create a triable issue of fact whether the employer has created a hostile work environment.
