How does Texas Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First, Pasadena 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.

Pasadena, Texas is a city in Harris County. It is the second-largest city in Harris County, and the 15th largest city in Texas.

Before Europeans settled the area now known as Pasadena, several different Native American tribes lived there for thousands of years. Some of the final battles of the Texas Revolution, which resulted in Texas gaining independence from Mexico and becoming (for about ten years) its own country, were fought in the area now occupied by Pasadena. The 1900 hurricane that destroyed Galvaston also damaged Pasadena, but it resulted in a large influx of refugees into Pasadena, some of whom decided to stay. This led to a permanent population increase.
