Two women servers in another state earlier this year claimed that a celebrity chef harassed them sexually. They filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Michael Chiarello. That lawsuit was settled recently, although the terms of the settlement were not disclosed. Anybody who suffers this type of harassment in Texas has the right to take legal action.
A former university administrative assistant in another state recently filed a civil lawsuit against the university, alleging discrimination. Specifically, she claimed that she suffered both race discrimination and age discrimination, which are illegal in Texas and elsewhere. She asserted that she was eventually fired from her job for reporting the discrimination.
A former flight attendant recently filed a lawsuit in another state against two airlines. In her lawsuit, she claimed that she was led to quit her job due to employer/employee retaliation, which is illegal in Texas and other states. She is seeking $800,000 as part of the lawsuit.
In a recent out of-state case, a woman claimed she was sexually harassed at her workplace, the OWN network belonging to Oprah Winfrey. The woman alleged that her female supervisor humiliated her and that she was also subject to harassment on the basis of her pregnancy. If people in Texas are victims of sexual harassment, they have the right to pursue accountability against the reported perpetrators of the harassment.
A woman in a different state claimed that she was prevented from being promoted a few years ago simply because she is a woman. The woman, therefore, filed a lawsuit against her former boss, a police chief, and the case is now at trial. Gender discrimination remains a real problem in Texas, but those who engage in this type of illegal conduct may be held liable for it.
Three former employees of Farmers Insurance Exchange in another state accused the insurance company of discriminating against them on the basis of race and retaliating against them and filed a lawsuit against the company. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or EEOC, recently announced that the insurance company will pay a total of $225,000 to settle this lawsuit. When a company in Texas and elsewhere engages in race discrimination and/or retaliation, it may be held liable through the civil court system.
A company in another state recently agreed to settle a lawsuit that the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission had filed, alleging that the company had allowed one of its workers to be harassed sexually. The company said it would pay $50,000 to settle this suit. The lawsuit specifically alleged same-sex workplace sexual harassment, which is illegal in Texas and across the United States.
A former real estate executive in another state recently filed a lawsuit, alleging that she was harassed sexually. The woman claimed that she was then terminated unfairly over a relationship that she attempted to hide at first. When an individual in Texas or another state experiences sexual harassment, it is within his or her rights to take legal action through the civil court system.
