Male sexual harassment victims in Florida, we can help

At the Law Offices of Gary A. Costales, we get it. It is extremely embarrassing to admit that you have suffered sexual harassment at work. For most male employees, this means accepting the abuse and shouldering on. According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or EEOC, you are not alone as a victim of harassment. The statistics show you are also not alone in your reluctance to report sexual harassment. In 2011 alone, harassment reports filed by men totaled a mere 16.3 percent while reports by women totaled 83.7 percent.

Worse, some men may not believe they are true victims of sexual harassment. Many think it is impossible for a man to be harassed in this manner. If you feel uncomfortable by behaviors such as unwelcome flirting, inappropriate touching, being asked for sexual favors and being offered employment advancement in return for sexual activity, then you are almost certainly a victim.

We know you do not want to deal with the situation. You want it to disappear so that you can do your work in peace and then go home to your family. Unfortunately, most sexual harassment does not disappear just because you wish it to. You should tell the person to stop the offensive activities firmly and with no room for misinterpretation. If that fails, then the legal system can help you.

In Florida, you do not have to stand up for your workplace rights alone. We will stand with you and give you the legal and personal support you need. Male sexual harassment needs you to take action so that other victims can follow your example. Read our sexual harassment web page to learn more about this ongoing problem.
