Forms of Sexual Harassment

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.
