Employers in Houston must be vigilant about preventing harassment for the good of their workers as well as their businesses. However, instances of harassment are not always cut and dry. In some cases, seemingly minor incidents can become huge legal hassles if not handled appropriately. To this end, it’s important for you to know exactly what constitutes harassment so that you can react accordingly.
As illustrated by The Balance.com, workplace harassment comes in many forms. It can even be present during the initial interview if the interviewer chooses to ask candidates inappropriate questions. This can include queries related to marital status, race, religion and many others. Doing so violates the law, and could result in legal reprisal if the candidate decides to file suit.
