Located in Fort Lauderdale, our harassment attorneys at Donna M. Ballman, P.A. represent executives and employees throughout south Florida in cases involving allegations of sexual harassment and forms of discrimination and retaliation. If necessary, we consult investigators and forensic specialists in recovering deleted emails, phone messages, analyzing handwriting, and evaluating pertinent physical evidence. We also may subpoena employee records, depose managers and supervisors, and gather eyewitness testimony. We are prepared to negotiate, file charges of discrimination, or sue when necessary to preserve your rights. We are prepared to establish a pattern of inappropriate behavior by an employer or underscore a lack of evidence when an employee makes groundless charges.
If you are the victim of inappropriate, unacceptable behavior on the part of an employer, we will assert your rights, protect your interests, and offer evidence in support of your case. To schedule an appointment and discuss your case, contact sexual harassment lawyer Donna M. Ballman, P.A. today.
While every case is different, the following kinds of behavior could be grounds for a sexual harassment lawsuit:
- Repeated sexual advances
- Tying promotions to sexual favors or dating
- Sexually explicit emails, memos, or jokes
- Unwanted touching, pinching, or caressing
- Persistent uncomfortable comments about dress or personal appearance
- Differing treatment due to gender
Silence is not Your only Option - Confronting Sexual Harassment
While general harassment or bullying is not illegal in Florida, if you are a victim of sexual harassment (or other forms of harassment due to race, age, religion, national origin, disability, color, or retaliation for objecting to illegal activity) in the workplace or at work functions, we may negotiate, file a charge of discrimination, investigate what happened, collect evidence, and represent your legal interests. Everyone deserves to work at their job free from unwanted sexual advances or forms of illegal harassment. If you are being harassed, please follow your company's internal reporting policies and consult an attorney before taking any drastic action, such as quitting your job. If you do not report harassment in writing and give your employer the opportunity to correct the situation, you may lose your right to sue.
