Sexual Harrasment

Sexual Harassment

Have you been sexually harassed at work?

Sexual harassment in Florida is prohibited under federal laws, as well as the Florida Civil Rights Act of 1992. This Act secures freedom from discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability or marital status and also protects an individual’s interest in personal dignity.

Conduct generally considered to be sexual harassment includes:

  • direct sexual advances or conduct
  • offers of job related benefits in exchange for sexual conduct or “quid pro quo”
  • hostile work environment, when an employer maintains or allows an overly sexual work environment.

People tend to think of sexual harassment as a scenario where a male superior requests sexual favors from a female employee. However it may be that sexual harassment involves a female superior and male employee or even a female and female or male and male situation. The commonality in each of these, is that the employee is always at a disadvantage because he or she knows that if they do not comply with the sexual harassment, they will suffer adverse actions such as a reduction in salary, termination of employment, or not receiving a promotion.

It is often the case that victims of sexual harassment are also subjected to a hostile work environment. In such an environment, co-workers may post offensive sexual images within work areas; there may be instances of physical touching; pornographic emails may be sent to employees; sexual jokes or acts may be committed during work time; and the employer does nothing stop this overtly sexual behavior in the workplace.
