Seek legal advice from an experienced employment law attorney.

What Constitutes Sexual Harassment
According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), sexual harassment includes:
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. Reporting hostile work environment harassment is important because a victim’s failure to file a complaint may later prevent him/her from receiving justice and compensation for sexual harassment.
