Texas victims of sexual harassment have legal options

Feeling unsafe at work is never a situation in which any employee wants to find him or herself. Unfortunately, sexual harassment can quickly result in workers feeling as if their work environment is no longer a secure place. If the circumstances are serious, individuals may have cause to pursue legal action.

Texas residents may be interested in one out-of-state woman's case involving such harassment. Reports stated that the woman works as part of a construction team, and she filed a lawsuit after a male co-worker sexually harassed her at work. The woman had apparently been approached by the man after he overheard a conversation she had had with another individual. The man then made sexual comments as part of a threat. After that incident, the man was allegedly reprimanded.

The purported reprimand did not deter the man, however, as he later followed the woman to a portable restroom and took photos of her through the vent. The man then showed the photos to other workers after the woman refused to have sex with him. After complaining about these acts and the lack of a secure restroom, the woman was fired from her job. As a result, she filed a lawsuit for discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination and other issues. 

No worker should be subjected to such vulgar actions. If Texas residents have been the victims of sexual harassment while they were on the job, they may wish to determine what their legal options are for addressing the issues. Experienced employment law attorneys could provide much-needed advice on the possible options for proceeding.
