People in Florida who work for other individuals or company likely know that there are laws designed to ensure that everyone is able to do their jobs in a safe environment. This does not only mean that hazards that may result in physical accidents are addressed but it also means that people should be able to go to work every day and be treated with respect by their colleagues and their superiors.
Unfortunately, this does not always happen making it important that there is a means for addressing potential issues of harassment, discrimination or other illegal activities in the workplace even though the laws clearly indicate that these things are illegal.
Many companies around the country have found themselves facing allegations of illegal behavior by managers, supervisors or other workers and today a well-known international fast food chain is among these. As explained by CNN Money, the allegations have been filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission by multiple workers in as many as seven states including Florida and nearby Louisiana.
Among the problems identified by the employees are sexual propositioning, harassment and being illegally fired after reporting an instance of sexual harassment by a person in a management position. Another woman indicated that management failed to seriously consider her complaints and yet another worker reported racial discrimination that contributed to the development of a hostile work environment.
People who face these challenges at work might want to talk with a lawyer to learn how they might best seek justice and compensation.
