Attorneys Prevail in Florida

Matt Hall and Faith Nixon represented a client located in the Florida panhandle concerning a claim for sexual harassment, discrimination and retaliation filed with the Florida Commission on Human Relations (FCHR) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) by one of its seasonal employees.  Faith and Matt participated in the investigation with the FCHR assisting the client in preparing information to be presented in response to requests for information.  Based on the evidence presented, the FCHR found that there was not substantial evidence to support the employee’s claim and issued a no cause finding, which will bar any state law claims for sexual harassment, discrimination and retaliatory discharge by this employee.  The EEOC also followed the recommendations of the FCHR.
