Miami employees have the right to work in an office or workplace that is completely free of unwanted sexual advances, sexual comments and harassment. In fact, those who are being subjected to this kind of abuse can and should make an immediate complaint to their supervisors without any fear of retaliation.
If you are being victimized at work by any kind of sexual harassment, stop making excuses for those who are doing it or stop saying that it’s really not that big of a deal. This is your pep talk from the legal team at the Law Offices of Gary A. Costales, PA. The law is on your side. You can stand up for your rights, and if you are retaliated against for doing so, the law will be doubly on your side.
An important aspect of many sexual harassment cases is the legal notion of “retaliation.” When an employer retaliates against an employee because he or she complained about sexual harassment, the employer will have committed another legal infraction and thereby bolstered the employee’s sexual harassment claims.
Florida courts are far more likely to award an even higher amount of financial compensation to employees who, for example, were terminated, demoted, suspended, given less working hours or suffered other negative consequences after they reported an instance of sexual harassment.
We have successfully represented numerous employees in their Florida sexual harassment claims. If you have been the victim of this kind of abuse, we are available to defend your rights and seek the maximum amount of financial compensation to make you whole.
