The laws of Texas define sexual harassment as any unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature, including actions of either a verbal or physical nature. Common examples of sexual harassment done by employers include making sexual advances, creating an overtly sexual and offensive work environment, and making demands for sexual favors as a condition to promotion.

How does Texas Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First, Socorro employers may be required to implement company policies concerning sexual conduct and post them for employees to see. Company polices might include such matters as contact information to be used in reporting sexual harassment, filing policies, and remedial measures in the event that a claim is proven to be true.

The laws of the state of Texas and federal law have both formed agencies with the authority to investigate sexual harassment claims. These agencies conduct investigations at a given Socorro 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?

A claim for sexual harassment may be difficult to investigate and prove without the proper expertise in the relevant areas of law. The federal officers who investigate claims of sexual harassment are, unfortunately, frequently too busy to give much attention to any one claim. So, hiring a Socorro lawyer can be the surest way to file your sexual harassment claim within the deadlines specified by the state of Texas.
