We Advocate for Victims of Wrongful Termination

What is wrongful termination?

Texas is an at-will state, meaning, unless there is an agreement stating otherwise, employees can be terminated for little to no reason. Many individuals believe they have been wrongfully terminated; however, that term is reserved for terminations that violate the law. 

Illegal reasons for termination

Although Texas is an at-will state, employees cannot be terminated for an illegal reason. Possible illegal reasons for termination include: 

  • Discrimination, meaning you were fired because of your national origin, gender, age, race, religion, or disability; 
  • Retaliation, meaning you were fired for reporting workplace discrimination;
  • You were fired for filing a workers' compensation claim;
  • You were fired because you are an active-duty member of the military;
  • You were fired for reporting unpaid overtime or other wage claims; 
  • You were fired because you reported unsafe work conditions; 
  • You were fired because you refused to commit an illegal act; or 
  • You were fired in breach of an employment contract. 

There are many laws that protect individuals from wrongful termination, and you need a knowledgeable attorney to help work through your issues to determine if you have a legitimate claim.  These laws often have short deadlines. Therefore, contact an employment lawyer as soon as possible.
