Texas restaurant sued for workplace discrimination

When a person applies for a job, they expect to be judged on their skills, level of professionalism and their merits -- not on their physical condition.

This is the recent situation of one person in Texas who has faced workplace discrimination.

Sexual harassment case in Texas involves unwanted advances

When a person is accepted to a position, they expected to be treated fairly and given the opportunity to excel -- not singled out. However, at some companies, employers and employees in Texas do choose to single out an employee due to their sex, and they treat this person differently or attempt to take advantage of them. When sexual harassment occurs, the person who has been sexually taken advantage of indeed can pursue legal action against the company.

Being offered a dream job can be an exciting time for a job seeker. During their time at a workplace, their goal is to bear the reputation of a hard worker and to be offered promotion opportunities based on merit.

A recent article explains this workplace discrimination phenomenon and why it is gaining ground in today's increasingly diverse work environment.

When an employee faces sexual harassment, they feel violated but can take legal action. This is the situation of one woman in Texas.
