Although it is not illegal to engage in harmless teasing, infrequent instances of sexual language or other isolated events, frequent or severe instances of this kind of behavior may represent an offensive or hostile work environment. A hostile employment environment can limit a victim’s ability to earn a living or cause unnecessary stress and health problems.
Adverse Employment Decisions
Sometimes it’s difficult to know whether an adverse employment decision (firing, demotion, bad review, loss of benefits, bad job assignments) was the result of rejecting sexual harassment. Countless employers simply get away with illegal employment decisions, unwarranted demotions or unjustified dismissals. Only a Florida lawyer with extensive experience representing individual plaintiffs can properly evaluate a potential sexual harassment violation. No one should have to endure discrimination or harassment because of their sex.
