Sexual Harassment At Work

Standing Up For Integrity In The Workplace

Many people all across Florida are subjected to sexual harassment at work every single day. But some may not necessarily know that such treatment they are experiencing is illegal and that they have a cause of action under the law.

Defining Sexual Harassment In The Workplace

Employees typically experience sexual harassment at work in one of two ways: via a hostile work environment or a quid pro quo situation.

Sexual harassment situations that give rise to a hostile work environment can include but are not limited to:

  • A co-worker or a supervisor making persistent and suggestive remarks about your body or the way you dress, or who touch you inappropriately
  • Pornographic or otherwise offensive images and jokes circulating around the office
  • Being asked overly personal questions about your sex life or love life
  • Receiving suggestive messages via email or text by a supervisor

In a quid pro quo situation, a co-worker, manager or supervisor pressures the employee to provide sexual favors in exchange for something like:

  • Keeping his or her job
  • Getting a promotion or raise
  • Avoiding disciplinary action or a demotion
