Relating to the prohibition against sexual harassment in the workplace.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
SB 46 would establish that an employer, defined as a person who employs one or more employees or acts directly in the interests of an employer in relation to an employee, commits an unlawful employment practice if sexual harassment of an employee occurs and the employer, employer's agents, or supervisors know or should have known that the conduct constituting sexual harassment was occurring and fail to take immediate and appropriate corrective action. This bill would remove the workforce count threshold for purposes of employment discrimination law relating to sexual harassment.
Texas Action remains neutral on SB 46 because it does not affect our liberty principles.
