Overview of Sexual Harassment

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission defines workplace sexual harassment as unwelcome sexual advances or conduct of a sexual nature which unreasonably interferes with the performance of a person’s job or creates an intimidating hostile, or offensive work environment. Sexual harassment can range from persistent offensive sexual jokes to inappropriate touching to posting offensive material on a bulletin board. Sexual harassment in the workplace is a serious problem and it can be directed at both men and women.

Both Title of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, and the Florida Civil Rights Act protect employees from sexual harassment at work. Sexual harassment is a form of gender discrimination, under both the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, and the Florida Civil Rights Act. Numerous court decisions have held that the Florida Civil Rights Act is modeled after Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended.
