Frequently Asked Questions
Labor laws can be complex, so we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions. Whether your specific question appears on our list, we encourage you to schedule a free case evaluation with one of our experienced attorneys.
What constitutes harassment in the workplace?
In order for workplace harassment to rise to the level at which the courts will provide relief, it must be something severe and pervasive. A single comment in the workplace, however, can be enough to be severe and pervasive harassment depending on the nature of the act. It is important that you call an experienced attorney and for a more specific evaluation.
What forms of discrimination am I protected against?
If you have a “protected status,” you might have a valid case against your employer. This includes being discriminated against at work based on age, race, religion, national origin, pregnancy, disability, gender, or sex, including individuals who identify as LGBTQ or are perceived by their employer to be LGBTQ. For additional information specific to your issue, it is important to discuss your matter with an experienced attorney.
What does “at-will” employment mean?
The basic rule of Texas employment law is employment at will, which means that, absent a statute or an express agreement (such as an employment contract) to the contrary, either party in an employment relationship may modify any of the terms or conditions of employment, or terminate the relationship altogether, for any reason, or no particular reason at all, with or without advance notice. For additional information specific to your issue, it is important to discuss your matter with an experienced attorney.
What should I do if I think I have been wrongfully terminated?
Wrongful termination claims depend on whether all of the facts that led to the termination would create a wrongful termination. If the employer’s motivation in firing the employee was unlawful, then the employee may bring a wrongful termination claim even if the employee is an at-will employee. It can be difficult to determine what actions and motivations can give rise to a workers compensation claim. For additional information specific to your issue, it is important to discuss your matter with an experienced attorney.
