How do I build a watertight sexual harassment lawsuit?

People who sexually harass others sometimes do it unconsciously -- it's just a part of their personalities to bully and dominate their coworkers. Other sexual harassers do it strategically, so there aren't any witnesses -- in an attempt to cover their tracks. If you're being sexually harassed by one of these strategic harassers, you'll need to take extra care to gather the evidence required to build a watertight case.

These sexual harassment statistics are distressing

Workplaces in Florida and the rest of the nation are not doing their part in bringing sexual harassment to a stop. The #MeToo movement is further proof of this fact, which -- if you've been victimized by sexual harassment -- you're already well aware of. But just how bad is sexual harassment in U.S. workplaces? The following sexual harassment statistics reveal the distressing truth:

How many employers offer sexual harassment training?

The need for employers to offer their employees sexual harassment is vital. Given the recent surge in sexual harassment cases to hit the news, it certainly begs the question: If employers were more proactive in educating workers about what sexual harassment, how to refrain from it, how to recognize it and what to do if you've been a victim, would current #MeToo movement even be necessary?
