One of the exceptions of the employment at will doctrine in the state of Texas is discrimination based on sex. Sexual discrimination includes sexual harassment. Sexual harassment includes two types: quid pro quo which means this for that, and sexual harassment under hostile work environment.
Hostile Work Environment
Hostile work environment means that the sexual atmosphere in the workplace is either severe or pervasive. Severe can be one severe event, or pervasive can be a series of events that occur over a period of time. So, sexual harassment in a hostile work environment in the workplace needs to be severe or pervasive. If you feel like you are experiencing sexual discrimination based on a hostile work environment, then call me today so that we can discuss your case. The consultation is confidential and at no charge.
