Ending harassment is a group effort

Workers in Florida may have either experienced or heard about sexual harassment at work. However, it is a problem that both employees and employers can work together to solve. Employees should document any instance of harassment that they see or experience. Doing so may make it easier to have a claim investigated after it has been reported to HR or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Employers should provide adequate harassment training to all workers and managers within the organization. Providing training can serve as a proactive measure to prevent harassment from occurring. Ideally, it will be done in a live setting where people can ask questions and have discussions. When employers and employees work together to solve the problem, it can lead to an attitude change within the organization. This attitude change may then spill over to other workplaces as well.

When a victim sees that they can get help, they will be more likely to take control of the situation as opposed to letting the situation take control of them. It is worth noting that harassment can impact both men and women, so everyone can benefit from creating a society where it doesn't exist. In many cases, those who are harassed or abused will try to process the event or feel its impact for many years after it occurs.

Any worker in Florida who feels that they have been a victim of harassment may have recourse. It's possible to file a charge with the EEOC or file a lawsuit against an employer. An attorney could review a case to determine the best way to proceed. Successful claims may result in a financial award from a settlement or jury decision.
