Retaliation/Wrongful Termination

Employees in the state of Texas work under a system that is referred to as "at-will employment." This means that an employer can terminate an employee, at will, without having to provide an explanation. This does not mean, however, that an employer can fire an employee for any reason.

Employers are legally prevented from terminating the employment of an individual under many circumstances. For instance, employers cannot fire you:

  • Because you filed a claim for discrimination
  • Because you claim to have been sexually harassed at work
  • Because you have reported your employer for an employment law, environmental or other legal infringement
  • Because you're pregnant or need to take time off under the FMLA
  • Because of your race, religion, sexual orientation and numerous other protected statuses
  • Because you are backing a co-worker's claim of harassment, discrimination or whistleblowing

There are dozens of other examples of circumstances in which you cannot be fired. If you have been terminated by your employer and have questions regarding wrongful termination retaliation law in Texas,contact us at Rosales Law Firm to learn more information about your rights.
