Corpus Christi Sexual Harassment Attorney

Find the right Sexual Harassment attorney in Corpus Christi, TX

The laws of Texas define sexual harassment as any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature, including acts of either a verbal or physical nature. Sexual advances, creating a hostile work environment that is blatantly sexual in nature, and sexual advances are some of the more frequent types of sexual harassment amongst employers.

How does Texas Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First, employers in Corpus Christi are often required to implement company policies regarding sexual conduct, which must be posted and visible to employees. These policies may include contact information for an employee to report sexual harassment, the procedure for handling such claims, and the corrective measures for when a claim is proven.

The laws of the state of Texas and federal law have both appointed agencies with the authority to investigate sexual harassment claims. These agencies conduct investigations at a given Corpus Christi work site in order to verify if a complaint that they have received is true or not. Employers are also prohibited under these laws from taking action in retaliation against an employee who has claimed sexual harassment, such as firing them or denying them a promotion.

How can a Texas attorney help?

Without expertise in the applicable laws, both investigating and showing a sexual harassment claim can be difficult. The federal officers who investigate claims of sexual harassment are, unfortunately, often too busy to give much attention to any one claim. Accordingly, hiring a lawyer in Corpus Christi might be the best way to ensure that your claim is filed within the deadlines specified by Texas for sexual harassment matters.
