Attorney Micah Longo of The Longo Firm in Davie, FL says, “federal and state civil rights laws prohibit employers from discriminating against workers because of their sex. In other words, these laws prohibit a hostile work environment caused by sexual harassment. Usually, a worker claims a co-worker or supervisor harassed her because of sex and that harassment created a hostile work environment. To have a sexual harassment case in Florida the offensive acts or statements must be so severe or pervasive that it materially alters the terms and conditions of the employment. Factors that are considered are how often the conduct occurred? it’s severity? whether it was physically or psychologically threatening or humiliating? and whether it interfered with the worker’s performance? If you feel you’ve been sexually harassed or subjected to a hostile work environment you should immediately report the conduct, in writing. If your supervisor or boss is the one doing the harassing report to Human Resources. The law protects you from retaliation for reporting workplace sexual harassment.
