Proof that Employment Laws are Still Necessary in Texas
Caught this story here in Dallas where a now defunct medical lab had “gropening day” every other Friday. Here is a link to the story. Basically employees were free to grope one another every other Friday – no joke. It’s hard to believe something like this occurs in 2017. Unfortunately it does. A former female employee sued the lab after she was subjected to ongoing harassment at the lab and quit after six month. Here is a link to her interview. Apparently her story has been substantiated by a former supervisor at the lab who says the story is not embellished.
Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on your perspective, the lab is out of business so a civil suit recovery may be difficult. Stories like these are a reminder that we still have a long way to go when it comes to workplace harassment.
