Sexual harassment is the most infamous kind of workplace harassment. In fact, we hear so much about sexual harassment in the news that many people believe it’s the only kind of workplace harassment for which legal relief may be available. But while sexual harassment is one of the most common forms of personal disturbances in the workplace, Florida law and federal law both provide protection for many other kinds of harassment.
As a general rule, workers have rights against harassment that is severe enough to create a “hostile or abusive work environment.” Harassment that restricts your free speech, free exercise of religion, or the exercise of other protected rights may also be grounds for legal action. An Orlando employment law attorney can help you determine whether your workplace experience may constitute harassment in the eyes of the law. No one should have to endure a hostile or abusive work environment.
Here are a few of the other types of harassment for which the law may provide relief:
- Sex / Gender Identification
- Sexual Orientation
- Marital Status
- Political Beliefs
- National Origin
- And More
