Laredo Sexual Harassment Attorney

Find the right Sexual Harassment attorney in Laredo, TX

The laws of Texas define sexual harassment as any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature, including actions 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 forms of sexual harassment amongst employers.

How does Texas Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First, Laredo employers can be required to create company policies that specifically address sexual harassment in the workplace. These must be posted in a visible area such as a break room. These policies may include contact information for an employee to report sexual harassment, the process 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 established agencies with the authority to investigate sexual harassment claims. These agencies conduct investigations at a given Laredo work site in order to verify if a complaint that they have received is true or not. These laws also prohibit employers from firing employees 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. The federal agencies that handle initial claims of sexual harassment are frequently understaffed and overworked. Therefore, hiring a Laredo lawyer can be the surest way to file your sexual harassment claim within the deadlines specified by the state of Texas.
