Workplace harassment continues to be a leading issue both on the state and federal level. With the growth of the #metoo movement, there has been an increase in claims nationwide, and recent developments on the state and federal level have changed how litigants typically bring – and resolve – such claims. In 2021, the Texas legislature drastically expanded the Texas Commission on Human Rights Act to respond to this movement. Attendees will learn about these changes and other updates to workplace harassment law, and how they will change the landscape of these claims in the future.
