DO YOU HAVE GROUNDS TO SUE FOR SEXUAL HARASSMENT IN ORLANDO?
Sexual harassment takes many forms, and it can affect individuals of either gender. In many cases, it will be quid pro quo harassment, which consists of requesting or demanding sexual favors in exchange for a raise or as a condition of keeping one’s job. This can range from mild suggestions that an employee should wear more revealing clothes or be more “friendly,” to outright demands for sex. Sexual harassment can also take the form of actions that tend to create a hostile work environment.
If the actions or comments of others in your workplace make you feel greatly uncomfortable to the degree that you dread going into work or find it difficult or impossible to perform your work duties, you could have grounds to sue for this type of harassment. For example, you might be made uncomfortable by having a supervisor or co-workers leering at you, making inappropriate comments, telling lewd jokes or using derogatory language. It is not necessary for the harassing behavior to be directed at you for you to have a claim for sexual harassment. If, for example, two co-workers have been engaging in sexually inappropriate or lewd behavior in your presence in the workplace, you could have grounds to file a sexual harassment claim.
