In other words, in the state of Florida, if an employer harasses a female employee and she fails to "perform" due to the stress of the situation, she can be fired...and NOT be able to file for unemployment.
An employer can DENY and win. Too many times, in the state, there have been TOO many stories of abuse from employers and workers "stuck" in situations that made it very difficult to stay.
Florida is a "right-to-work" state giving employees even less than an opportunity at steady long term employment.
A small company that does a lot of road work all over the state does "favors" to earn those contracts. But, does not pay the employees with REAL checks that don't bounce.
A former jockey that owned a farm in one area and trained horses paid his employees with those "bouncing" checks.
A small business owner in the Pompano Bch area would scream at the employees and threaten the customers. The work environment was considered "toxic" by the EEOC. Because the business had a small employment number, there was no recourse.
A company near Orlando was known to be heavily involved with drug use from the owner down to the warehouse workers. Management had a free-hand at sexually harassing the female employees. Absolutely, no viable solutions for the employees.
A kitchen in a popular restaurant in Riverview refuses to fix the A/C in the kitchen as the temp. gauge measures 150 degrees. The staff still has to work...for they need those jobs, as their sweat falls on top of those steaks and burgers.
Welcome to Florida, where Gov. Scott has championed the rights of the employers against the survival of the employees.
