West Palm Beach Workplace Harassment Attorneys

Representing the Victims of Harassment in Florida

Workplace harassment – including sexual harassment – creates what has been labeled a “hostile” work environment. This type of environment makes it difficult for the harassed employee to do their job due to intimidation or fear of being fired. It often involves discriminatory conduct, which is illegal under state and federal law. It can be caused by a supervisor, a co-worker, or a person in the environment who is not a direct employee of the company. It also may involve a group of people acting as harassers.

If you have been harassed at work, you may have recourse through an employment claim filed against your employer. At the Sconzo Law Office, P.A., our West Palm Beach harassment lawyers have the knowledge, skill, and drive to help you obtain justice. We are a leading law firm in the area that vigorously fights for the rights of wronged employees. When you bring your case to us, you will not pay a fee unless we win on your behalf.

What Constitutes Harassment?

Workplace harassment may come in the form of both physical and verbal conduct. It may be a violation of laws that prohibit discrimination based on one’s sex, religion, age, nationality, disability, or race.

Examples of harassment include:

  • Slurs of a racial, religious, sexual, or age-related nature
  • Name-calling
  • Lower pay, being passed over for promotion, undesirable work assignments or schedules
  • Offensive jokes
  • Discussions of sexual activities
  • Sexual advances
  • Posting sexual photos, emails, or texts
  • Indecent physical gestures
  • Touching or making body contact that is sexual in nature
  • Repeatedly asking someone for a date after being consistently turned down
  • Repeated comments on an employee’s body, physical attributes, or dress
  • Veiled threats of job loss unless one engages in sexual favors

To make a claim of harassment or sexual harassment, the behavior generally must be consistent or pervasive. One isolated instance will not usually support a legal claim. Because of this, it is essential to document the instances of harassment as much as possible for substantiation. A valid claim may lead to compensatory damages.
