Types of sexual harassment seen in the workplace

Sexual_harassment_types_at_work_florida.jpgWhen Florida employees experience types of mistreatment in the workplace, they may be unsure of what to do next or whether or not they are overreacting. In reality, victims of sexual harassment and other types of illegal treatment are often confused and overwhelmed by their experience because this type of behavior can come in many different forms. Uncertainty over what happened may lead some victims to remain silent and never seek recourse. 

Harassment can come from a co-worker or even a supervisor, but it can also come from other people a victim may come in contact with, including clients, contracted third parties and people from the community. The individual who instigates this type of treatment is responsible for his or her behavior, but the employer is also responsible for ensuring that employees are protected from harassment. This includes handling reports of harassment quickly and efficiently.

Sexual harassment comes in many different forms. It can include inappropriate remarks, unwanted contact, aggressive behavior, sending suggestive emails and much more. If a certain type of behavior makes an employee feel attacked, threatened or uncomfortable, it may count as harassment. Victims have the right to seek recourse and speak out about what they experienced.

The Florida civil justice system provides victims of sexual harassment the opportunity to hold people accountable for illegal behavior in the workplace. These claims can be complex, and the aggressor or employer may deny the victim's claims. It is beneficial for an individual considering legal action to first speak with an attorney who can provide guidance and support.
