On-the-job sexual harassment case may interest Florida workers

Facing inappropriate sexual actions on the job can be a hazard for individuals of any gender. As a result, both male and female workers could be at risk of being the victim of sexual harassment. This harassment could come in the form of inappropriate touching, comments or other actions. If an employee is being subjected to such a situation, filing a complaint with a supervisor may be necessary.

Florida workers may be interested in a situation in another state dealing with sexual harassment on the job. It was reported that a worker had filed a complaint about another employee who had apparently been voicing inappropriate comments and questions as well as touching coworkers inappropriately. The individual who filed the complaint had his claimed backed-up by other workers who had reportedly witnessed the actions.

As a result, the alleged harasser was terminated from his position, and a supervisor who had apparently been on duty when the actions took place was required to go through training. The former employee believes that the termination was not necessary and that the claim was filed due to other workers being unhappy about his promotion. Due to the situation, harassment training was also order for all workers in the department.

In this situation, workers were lucky enough to have an employer who took their claims seriously and addressed the situations as he saw fit. However, there can some instances in which filing a claim with a supervisor or employer may not garner the necessary actions to rectify a sexual harassment situation. Therefore, Florida workers who feel that they were harassed while on the job and that their claims were not handled appropriately may want to consider further legal action.
