Policewoman files claim alleging sexually harassment

A policewoman has filed a lawsuit alleging that she was victimized by a superior officer. The sexual harassment case accuses a Lieutenant of touching in a sensual manner and directing extremely inappropriate comments at her. Furthermore, the woman's attorney argues that the precinct's reaction to the woman reporting the behavior constitutes retaliation.

Fire chief says city broke whistleblower laws by firing him

In Florida, whistleblower statues exist to protect public employees who speak up about possible public safety issues or improper conduct of government officials from being fired. Certainly anyone could see why it would be unfair and even dangerous to fire an employee who is simply looking out for the best interests of his or her city. Unfortunately, some public officials would rather keep a whistleblower quiet than address them in an appropriate manner.

Florida prison workers win class-action status in harassment case

One of the common misconceptions about sexual harassment is that it should be tolerated in certain workplaces. Employers are sometimes of this mindset in male-dominated industries. They might think that if a woman chooses to work in a male-dominated workplace, she should accept that she might be subject to unwanted sexually suggestive comments or vulgar conversations. This, however, is not true. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits sexual harassment in every industry.
