Any type of hostile work environment is unacceptable, especially if sexual harassment is the cause of the hostility. Employees who have experienced sexual harassment on the job have a right to hold the employer, and the harasser, accountable for their damaging actions.

At the offices of Carter & Bachynsky, L.L.P., our attorneys have successfully represented many different clients who have been sexually harassed on the job. Contact our Houston or San Antonio offices today to talk with an attorney.

If you have experienced wrongful termination, lack of promotion or employer retaliation due to your refusal of a sexual favor or reporting of another type of sexual harassment, take immediate action to ensure the preservation of your rights and future.

Do Not Stand for Inappropriate Behavior in the Workplace

Sexual harassment and other illegal workplace actions, including discrimination and inappropriate behavior, should not be tolerated in the workplace. Sexual harassment includes any unwelcome verbal or physical action such as:

  • Inappropriate and unwelcome touching, including pinching, patting, rubbing or purposefully brushing up against another person
  • Sharing sexually inappropriate images or videos, such as pornography, with co-workers
  • Sending suggestive letters, notes, texts or e-mails
  • Displaying inappropriate sexual images or posters in the workplace
  • Telling sexual jokes or sharing sexual stories
  • Making inappropriate sexual gestures
  • Staring in a sexually suggestive or offensive manner, or whistling
  • Making sexual comments about appearance, clothing or body parts
  • Asking sexual questions, such as questions about someone’s sexual history or their sexual orientation
  • Making offensive comments about someone’s sexual orientation or gender identity
  • Repeatedly asking a person out for dates, or to have sex
