A comfortable work environment can make a considerable difference in how much Florida residents look forward to going to work. Even if people do not necessarily enjoy the work they do, having friendly co-workers, respected management and an overall amiable place to work could lessen the possibly boring idea of going to work. However, boredom may be the least of a worker's worries if he or she works in a hostile workplace.
When 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.
Florida employees should not be subjected to unfair or discriminatory treatment in their place of work. Harassment and unfair treatment can lead to the development of a hostile work environment, potentially causing significant emotional damage to the person who is experiencing it. Harassment of any kind is unacceptable and inexcusable in a professional environment, and it may be grounds for a civil claim against the employer.
