How does Texas Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First, Port Arthur employers may be required to create company policies concerning sexual conduct and post them for employees to see. Such policies should include items such as contact information for reporting harassment incidents, process for filing claims, and any corrective or preventative measures should a claim be proven.

There are also agencies which are formed by federal and Texas law for the specific purpose of handling sexual harassment cases. Such agencies have the authority to investigate work sites to determine if the complaints they receive in Port Arthur are true. Such laws also make it illegal for employers to dismiss an employee for filing a harassment claim or to take any other action based on retaliation against the employee.
