Woman and man make opposite claims in harassment case

Women, like men, want to do their work in peace, make money and advance their careers. Being subject to harassment, however, throws all of that asunder and makes work life unnecessarily difficult. It can also result in personal, public and legal issues for the person accused of doing the harassing. That fact was illustrated this week when a Florida Keys woman walked into a federal court and filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against a well-known restaurant owner.

Florida banking commissioner accused of harassment

Banking professionals and their customers across Miami, Florida, were shocked by the recent revelation that the top banking regulator of Florida was suspended at the end of last week.

Facing sexual harassment at work? Here is what you need to do

Sexual harassment is illegal, and it's something everyone needs to take seriously. In the past year, there have been many reports of harassment, some going back years or even decades. It is clear that this is a big problem and that employees need to know their rights.

First and foremost, anyone can be targeted by sexual harassment, regardless of their gender, age, race or any other factor. It's problematic to stereotype groups and paint them as victims or perpetrators in all cases, as that overlooks many instances in which the roles are reversed.

Employee dating policies aim to reduce harassment

Single people often wind up dating someone in their workplace. It's one of the easiest, most natural places to meet someone.

The link between power and sexual harassment

Male cruise line employee files sexual harassment claim

A former labor analyst for Disney Cruise Line has filed a legal action alleging that he was victimized by sexual harassment and age discrimination and that he was subjected to a hostile work environment and bullying.

Are you being subjected to sexualized behavior at work?

If you experience a feeling of discomfort on a daily basis related to the behavior of your coworkers or supervisors, you might want to stop and consider whether you're being sexually harassed.

Take these steps if you're a victim of sexual harassment

The experience of being sexually harassed at work is one of the most demoralizing things that any employee could ever have to endure. Unfortunately, even though the #MeToo movement has been going strong, this awful behavior has continued throughout Florida workplaces, and the only way victims can ever hope to make it stop is to stand up for their rights as soon as they realize they're being victimized.
