Austin Hostile Work Environment Attorneys
Should an employee in any Austin workplace ever become subject to a pattern of exposure of unwanted sexual behavior, and management does nothing to discourage or prevent said behavior, that employer may be held financially liable for fostering a hostile work environment. This differs, then, from quid pro quo sexual harassment as an Austin employer may be held liable for sexual harassment even when there is no direct effect on the terms of an individual’s employment. The Austin hostile work environment attorneys at The Melton Law Firm understand just how much a hostile work environment may impact your ability to perform your job duties.
If you have been subject to a hostile work environment in Austin, we can help you recover any damages you have sustained as a result.
