Workplace harassment after the #MeToo movement

The #MeToo movement has made headlines in Florida and other states as many high-profile women have come forward with accounts of sexual harassment. According to a recent survey, employers believed that instances of sexual harassment have decreased while workers believed otherwise.

Can employers regulate employees' social media profiles?

The advent of social media has made the world a little smaller, and it is easier than ever before for everyone to have an opinion. Employers may naturally worry about what their workers will post, and it has become common for people to lose their jobs over what goes onto Facebook. For example, one woman lost her job after a picture of her went viral. 

LGBT workers and workplace discrimination statistics

Employers in Florida are required to provide their workers with safe working environments, and they're prohibited from discriminating against prospective or current employees on the basis of certain protected characteristics. They are also required to protect workers from sexual harassment at the workplace. According to surveys compiled by the Williams Institute at UCLA, roughly 4 percent of the national workforce self-identifies as a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender person.

USPS employee alleges FMLA violation

Employees in Florida are guaranteed, at minimum, 12 weeks of unpaid leave under the Family Medical Leave Act, or FMLA. Employers can offer more protection for their employees, such as paid leave. A United States Postal Service employee has filed a lawsuit in Texas alleging that he was illegally fired after taking FMLA leave.
