Sexual harassment lawsuits may be filed in Florida for a number of claims, such as unwanted sexual advances, offering employment benefits for sexual favors, and other forms of verbal, physical, and visual harassment. Both genders may file sexual harassment claims, and the parties are not required to be of the opposite sex.
Although employers cannot oversee every move their employees make, the employer will reduce its risk of losing a sexual harassment lawsuit if certain preventative measures are taken. The employer should be able to show that reasonable care was taken to either prevent or correct the inappropriate behavior, and that the alleged victim did not take advantage of the employer’s actions to prevent or correct the behavior.
