Representing Employees Throughout South Florida
Attorney Gary A. Costales can help you decide whether and how to raise concerns about sexual harassment to your employer. We can help you identify what types of conduct rise to the level of sexual harassment at work and how to preserve your claim. Sexual harassment may take the form of:
- Quid pro quo: Promised continued employment, benefit or advancement in exchange for sexual favors and penalties for refusing to comply with these types of requests
- Hostile work environment: Unwanted sexual advances, comments, offensive language or behavior
We can also help evaluate if your employer properly investigated your claim and if they took immediate and appropriate remedial action once you notified them of the problem.
We will fight on your behalf for damages that resulted from the sexual harassment and to assert your employee rights in a way where you will not be wrongfully terminated or suffer retaliatory action.
