While most people think of harassment as discrimination, it is important to realize that an employer or work colleague can harass you without discriminating against you. While sexual harassment is one of the most common forms of harassment, any member of a protected class can be harassed; any harassment on the basis of age, race, sexual orientation or other factors is illegal. While this type of harassment frequently occurs with a superior harassing a subordinate, it can go the opposite way with a subordinate harassing a superior.
If and when someone continually gets hassled for being a protected class member, their career mobility isn't being affected, but a hostile work environment has been created. In California, this has to be pervasive and continuous.
