Houston Sexual Harassment Attorney

Find the right Sexual Harassment attorney in Houston, 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 Houston are often required to establish company policies regarding sexual conduct, which must be posted and visible to employees. The policies should at least include: contact information for the reporting of sexual harassment incidents, an outline of procedures to be followed in filing a claim, and the remedies available when a claim successfully proven.

The laws of the state of Texas and federal law have both created agencies with the authority to investigate sexual harassment claims. These agencies conduct investigations at a given Houston work site in order to verify if a complaint that they have received is true or not. These laws also prohibit employers from firing workers or taking any retaliatory action against workers who have complained of sexual harassment.

How can a Texas attorney help?

Without expertise in the applicable laws, both investigating and showing a sexual harassment claim can be difficult. It's fairly common for federal officials who investigate these matters to be overworked. With that in mind, you should consider speaking with an attorney in Houston, as this might be the best way to ensure that your claim is filed before the deadlines set by the laws of Texas.
