  • Sexual Harrasment? Texas

    My boss's sales guy calls me his "sexertariat" and always has inuendo's about sex. A good example is when he talks to his wife on the phone, he tells her that I won't go out with him or roll in the hay with him. I am getting really tired of it. My boss is his best friend, so nothing will come of it if I complain to him. What can i DO?

    How many employees does the company have in total?

      Is your co. too small to have a HR Dept. you can talk to? As Patty asked, how
      many employees does your employer have?

      Thanks.

        Thanks.
        We have fewer than 20 employees. It is owned by the boss. There are 2 females in the whole group and the other is the bosses wife. She only comes by to hand out payroll so you might say I do the rest!

        I have discouraged the talk, but that doesn't help.

          How many fewer than 20? Sexual harassment laws apply to employers with 15 or more employees.
          The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

              All I can suggest then, is that you discuss it with an attorney in your state, just in case there are any local or municipal statutes that may apply. Not likely, in Texas, but not impossible either.

                The OP can discuss. She can "charge" him, internally, with being a jerk. That is not a violation of any law. There are no federal or state "charges" or complaints that can be brought, because both jursidictions require at least 15 employees for such actions to be illegal.

                  The poster you responded to, Patty, was a spammer. A rather skillful spammer in that he actually answered the question without cutting and pasting from elsewhere in the thread, but a spammer nonetheless. So he's gone.

                    I thought, maybe, but figured I'd take a shot, just in case.

                      Some of the spammers are getting tricky.

                        You do realize that this post is well over a year old, right? The OP is long gone and the issue no doubt settled.

                          This is hardly a unique issue. If your purpose is to show off your research skills, I'm sure you could have found a more recent post to do so.
