Miami Beach Sexual Harassment Attorney

Find the right Sexual Harassment attorney in Miami Beach, FL

Florida law defines sexual harassment as any unwanted conduct of a sexual nature, whether they are verbal advances or physical action. Sexual advances, creating a hostile work environment that is blatantly sexual in nature, and sexual advances are some of the more common types of sexual harassment amongst employers.

How does Florida Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First, Miami Beach employers can be required to establish company policies that specifically address sexual harassment in the workplace. These must be posted in a visible area such as a break room. Matters covered by such policies should include contact information used by employees to report incidents, handling procedures for claims, and corrective measures (in the event that a claim turns out to be true).

Additionally, federal and Florida laws create specific agencies which are responsible for handling sexual harassment cases. The agencies are given authority to investigate workplaces in Miami Beach to determine if the incidents alleged in the complaints they receive are true. Also, under these laws, employers may not fire or retaliate against any employee who has alleged sexual harassment in a claim.

How can a Florida attorney help?

A claim for sexual harassment may be difficult to investigate and prove without the proper expertise in the relevant areas of law. It's not uncommon for federal investigators to be too busy to handle individual claims. Therefore, hiring an attorney in Miami Beach can be the safest way to file your claim within the deadlines for sexual harassment claims that Florida has defined.
