Has a co-worker or supervisor made unwelcome sexual advances toward you? You do not have to tolerate that type of behavior. Federal and state laws provide remedies to stop this behavior and hold the perpetrators responsible.
Texas Labor Code Chapter 21 and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act protect employees from employment discrimination based on sex or sexual harassment.
Sexual harassment includes, comments of a sexual nature, sexual innuendos, lewd or sexist remarks, and sexual jokes, which create an unpleasant employment atmosphere and perpetuates the impression that gender relegates you to a lower status and position.
The harasser can be female or male and you do not have to be of the opposite sex. The harasser can be your supervisor, an agent of the employer, a supervisor in a different department, a co-worker or a non-employee.
If you are subjected to any such unwelcome behaviors and they unreasonably interfere with your work performance, or creates a hostile or offensive work environment, then you may be a victim of sexual harassment.
