are denied promotion, raises, overtime and more. If you are a victim of

What Constitutes Sexual Harassment
According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), sexual
- Verbal conduct that is not wanted, such as a sexual advance
- Visual conduct that is not wanted, such as a deroagtory email
- Physical conduct that is not wanted such as groping or massages
- Threats and demands to submit to sexual requests
Report Sexual Harassment
Keeping silent about sexual harassment only helps promote further harassment.
According to Texas law, a victim’s rights are limited unless they
report harassment. If you are a victim of sexual harassment, the most
important thing you can do to stop the problem and remedy the situation
is to report the harassment.
The employer has a responsibility to clearly identify to whom the employee
should report the sexual harassment. If an employer does not have clear
anti-harassment guidelines, victims of sexual harassment should report
the issue to a supervisor, manager, Human Resources department, and even
the company president or owner.
