How to get employees to speak up

It has been traditionally seen as difficult for Florida employees to speak out against inappropriate behavior at work. However, companies are increasingly likely to want their people to point out instances of theft, harassment or other bad acts in the workplace. Of course, it can be difficult for employees to feel confident in addressing what they have seen or experienced to their superiors. One way to overcome that is to have employees report abusive behavior in groups.

When to file sexual harassment charges

A victim of sexual harassment at work in Florida may file a claim against their employer. However, there are certain statute of limitations rules to keep in mind. Someone who works for the federal government must generally file a claim with an EEO counselor within 45 days of the harassment occurring. Furthermore, the complaint must be filed within 15 days of notified by an EEO counselor about the filing process. Those who work for a private employer could have up to 300 days to make a sexual harassment claim.

There has been increased attention to workplace discrimination and other forms of on-the-job mistreatment in Florida and across the nation. Still, these issues have not stopped with that focus.

Manager clashes with attorney while testifying

Business owners in Florida and throughout the country are typically barred from taking actions that could be interpreted as racial discrimination.

He claimed that others within the organization used blatantly racist language on multiple occasions. However, a manager for the company refused to acknowledge that the employee who filed the suit was black.
