Houston Wrongful Termination Lawyer
Texas is an “at-will” state, meaning that your employer can hire, fire, demote, or promote you for whatever reason they want, or no reason at all – so long as the motivating reason for doing so is not based on your: age, race, gender, religious preference, pregnancy, or disability. If you are terminated for one of these reasons, you may have a “wrongful termination” claim against your employer.
Retaliation for Reporting Discrimination
In addition, if you report discrimination to your boss or Human Resources and are terminated in retaliation for doing so, you may have a claim against your employer for “wrongful termination.”
Retaliation for On-the-Job injury
If you are injured while on the job and your employer fires you (even before you formally file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits), you may have a claim for “wrongful termination.”
Retaliation for Failing to Commit an Illegal Act
If you refuse to commit or participate in an illegal act and you are fired for refusing to do so, you may have a claim against your employer for “wrongful termination.”
