Texas Attorneys Fighting Sexual Harassment
Quid Pro Quo Claims | Creation of a Hostile Environment Based on Sex | 14 Years of Employment Law Experience
For all the advances in gender equality over the last 50 years, there are still many places where women (and men) face harassment based on their sex. You may have been offered a job-related benefit in exchange for sexual favors, or even threatened with the loss of your job or some other work-related punishment if you don’t submit to a supervisor’s sexual advances. You may work in an environment where sexual innuendos, pictures, jokes, e-mails and other references make being there virtually or actually impossible. You have a right to a workplace free from all forms of sexual harassment. Bailey & Galyen can help.

Our Representation in Sexual Harassment Claims
We aggressively advocate for individuals who have been victims of sexual harassment in their employment. We handle claims involving:
- Quid pro quo sexual harassment — If a supervisor or boss has either offered you a job-related benefit, threatened you with sanctions for refusing sexual overtures, or subjected you to any negative consequences at work because of your unwillingness to provide sexual favors, we will help you seek compensation for all your losses
- The creation, encouragement, condoning, fostering or tolerance of a hostile environment focused on or related to sex or sexual matters — As a general rule, this must be ongoing, but it can involve a wide range of inappropriate behaviors, including jokes, comments, posters, pictures, images, objects, innuendoes or other communications focusing on sex. The references to sex must be so pervasive that they make the work environment hostile.
We will handle all matters related to a sexual harassment claim, from all communications with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to the filing and litigation of claims in civil court. We can help you pursue damages, even if you voluntarily quit your job, if you can show that you did so because of sexual harassment.
