In September 2021, Texas significantly expanded employer obligations under state sexual harassment laws. Under the new laws, SB 45 and  HB 21, Texas laws have changed. Texas now:

  • Allows victims to sue employers as well as supervisors and managers for sexual harassment
  • Extends the time in which employees can file a sexual harassment charge
  • Expands employer liability for sexual harassment where the employer does not take “immediate and appropriate corrective action.”

Act Now

Robust sexual-harassment-prevention training is recommended for all employees. The training should cover all policies and reporting procedures as well as methods for sexual harassment prevention in the workplace. Sources recommend that training for Texas-based employers is relevant to their industry as well.
