Orlando Sexual Harassment Lawyer

Most cases of sexual harassment fall into one of two categories:

The first is quid pro quo harassment, derived from the Latin phrase meaning "this for that," involves pressure from a co-worker, manager or supervisor to provide sexual favors in exchange for keeping your job, getting a promotion or raise, or avoiding disciplinary action or a demotion.

The second is a hostile workplace, which can involve:

  • Suggestive and unpleasant remarks about one's appearance, clothing or body
  • Inappropriate touching
  • The open display of grossly sexist or pornographic photographs or drawings
  • The circulation of sexually explicit or obscene pictures, jokes, or other material through e-mail
  • Rumors or accusations concerning one's sex life or sexual orientation
  • Company functions or client entertainment being held at strip clubs over an employee's objections

Employers with detailed written policies against sexual harassment can also get into trouble by failing to follow their own complaint investigation policies, or by making exceptions in favor of high-performing perpetrators or managers.

At the Law Office of William M. Julien, P.A., we investigate and pursue claims of sexual harassment promptly and aggressively. We handle most cases on a contingency fee basis, so you owe no attorneys fees unless we successfully resolve your case.
