Sexual harassment suit filed against Houston restaurant

According to a recent report, two female bartenders who were employed at the Berryhill Baja Grill in Houston allege they were repeatedly sexually harassed by the restaurant's manager while working. The two bartenders have filed a lawsuit against their former employer accusing the restaurant's management of sexual harassment, employment discrimination and retaliation. The suit alleges the manager constantly harassed and groped them, and on at least one occasion exposed himself to them.

Galveston County police deputy sues for harassment, retaliation

Study shows hiring managers biased against obesity

A few weeks ago, we wrote about the controversy surrounding a hospital in Victoria, Texas. For those who haven't heard about it, the hospital has enforced for more than a year a policy that prohibits the hiring of anyone with a body mass index of more than 35. While many are outraged at the concept, the policy is not necessarily illegal. And a recent study shows that Texas is not alone in the discriminatory practices against overweight workers.
