Sexual Harassment in the Florida Workplace

Sexual harassment is generally not considered an issue if it consists of an occasional offhand remark or annoyance. The problem is when someone repeatedly engages in offensive behavior or in an isolated instance where it is particularly insulting or unpleasant.

Sexual harassment can include:

  • Sexual slurs or ridicule
  • Sexual remarks about one’s body or sexual activities
  • Pictures, photos, posters, cartoons, or other graphic sexual content displayed or sent at work
  • Sexual threats or assaults
  • Sexual jokes made at the expense of others
  • Sexual advances or unwanted touching

Sexual harassment can develop into what is called a “hostile environment,” where it is so pervasive that it makes it difficult for the harassed employee to perform his or her duties. These are environments that have become intimidating and abusive.

When Managers Become Involved

“Quid pro quo” is another term used in sexual harassment cases where an employee is asked (or it is implied) to supply sexual favors in return for a workplace benefit, such as a promotion, raise, better schedule, or other consideration. Many of our clients come to us unsure of how to proceed with these kinds of lawsuits, as they feel their livelihoods could be at stake.

If you have suffered any type of sexual harassment at work, we strongly urge you to take advantage of the dedication, knowledge, and experience of NK Legal Group.
