Sarasota Sexual Harassment Attorney

Find the right Sexual Harassment attorney in Sarasota, FL

Florida law defines sexual harassment as any unwanted conduct of a sexual nature, whether they are verbal advances or physical action. Employers are most frequently involved in the following types of sexual harassment acts: demanding sexual favors in exchange for promotions, creating a sexually offensive work environment, and making sexual advances.

How does Florida Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First, employers in Sarasota are often required to implement company policies regarding sexual conduct, which must be posted and visible to employees. These policies may include contact information for an employee to report sexual harassment, the procedure for handling such claims, and the corrective measures for when a claim is proven.

Florida and federal laws created agencies that process claims involving sexual harassment. They have the authority to investigate Sarasota workplaces regarding the conduct alleged in the complaints that have been filed with them. Additionally, 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?

Without expertise in the applicable laws, both investigating and establishing a sexual harassment claim can be difficult. It's not uncommon for federal investigators to be too busy to handle individual claims. Because of this, working with a Sarasota attorney might be the best way to make sure that your claim is processed in a timely manner.

Life in Sarasota

Sarasota, Florida is the county seat of Sarasota County, located on the central Gulf Coast. It has a population of about 53,000 people.

Humans first settled Florida, including the Sarasota area, about 15,000 years ago - not very long after their initial arrival on North America. At that time, sea levels were much lower, and Sarasota would have been about 100 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico, rather than right on the coast. Europeans first settled the area in the 1600s.

Modernly, Sarasota has been hit hard by the crash of the U.S. housing market. However, it is still regularly visited by tourists, and tourism remains a major sector of its economy. Sarasota is also home to many sites of historic interest, from prehistoric archeological sites, to Civil War forts.

The architectural style prevalent in Sarasota was once so popular that it is now an established architectural style, known as the "Sarasota School" or "Sarasota Modern."
