Woman accuses multiple defendants of allowing sexual harassment

Victimized workers who report predatory behavior expect that their claims will be taken seriously. It can be difficult and frightening for the affected employees to come forward with their stories. Florida workers who suffer from sexual harassment may be forced to turn to the law so that harassment does not continue in the future.

A woman who worked as a secretary for a mining company has named several defendants in her sexual harassment case. According to her complaint, the former vice president of the company for which she worked sexually harassed her, as well as other female contractors and workers. The women allege that he threatened their jobs and forced them to watch him masturbate. These threats soon became worse, and the women claim they were forced to participate in sexual acts.

The women purportedly complained about what was happening, but the defendants reportedly did not take them seriously. Allegedly, the women were told that what the vice president was doing was harmless. Despite the complaints, the sexual harassment continued, and, after the vice president caught her alone and showed her a picture of his erection on his phone, she had had enough. 

The plaintiff reported the sexual harassment to her supervisor who said that he would report the incidents to upper management. The vice president allegedly did not suffer any adverse consequences for his actions and was offered the opportunity to resign and take a severance package. She is accusing the defendants of allowing the sexual harassment to happen and claims that she was humiliated and forced to endure mental duress. Aggrieved Florida workers who suffer similar sexual harassment can turn to the law to right the wrongs against them.
