How does Florida Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

These policies may include contact information for an employee to report sexual harassment, the process for handling such claims, and the corrective measures for when a claim is proven.

The laws of the state of Florida and federal law have both established agencies with the authority to investigate sexual harassment claims. These agencies conduct investigations at a given Port Orange work site in order to verify if a complaint that they have received is true or not. Also, under these laws, employers may not fire or retaliate against any employee who has alleged sexual harassment in a claim.
