Texas employees may fear sexual harassment

Though there are many hazards that individuals could face while on the job, being inappropriately treated by co-workers or supervisors should not be one of them. Unfortunately, many workers face sexual harassment and other negative actions in the workplace that could considerably affect them. If individuals are the victims of such mistreatment, they may wish to consider taking legal action.

Texas residents may be interested in such a case currently taking place in another state. Reports indicated that a woman working for a temporary employment agency was assigned to carry out duties at a Marriott-operated facility. While on the job, the woman claims that her supervisor sexually harassed her by making unwanted advances toward her. She also alleged that the supervisor burned her hand with a lighter. It was unclear under what circumstances these events may have occurred. 

As a result of these inappropriate actions, the woman requested an internal investigation, but her requests went unheeded. The woman recently filed a lawsuit against the temp agency, Marriott International and the supervisor involved in the incidents. She believes that these entities owed her a safe workplace, which was not provided. No comments from any of the defendants were given in the report. 

Any type of sexual harassment should not be tolerated, and when an individual is victimized in such a way while working, the situation may seem complicated. However, Texas employees who have been mistreated have legal options. By exploring these avenues, individuals may feel more in control of their state of affairs and feel hope for having the injustices addressed and potentially rectified.
