Texas Employment Laws

Employers and employees have rights and obligations recognized under Texas law. When these rights are overlooked or purposefully disregarded, legal problems arise, and the injured party has the right to pursue employment litigation.

We handle labor litigation that involves the following:

Discrimination: Any act that discriminates against an employee because of age, sex, race, creed, religion, or physical features is illegal. Discrimination includes harassment, retaliation, failure to pay proper compensation, and unlawful termination. Discriminatory acts may also include bias in the hiring process, promotions, job assignments, or other advancement opportunities.

The U.S. Constitution, as well as Texas state law, legally protects workers from discrimination.

Sexual Harassment: Sexual harassment can take on the form of coercion or bullying that is sexual in nature. It can also include unwelcome or inappropriate sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other acts of a sexual nature accompanied by a promise or reward.

While simple teasing and isolated incidents are not generally prohibited, it becomes unlawful when these actions create a hostile or offensive work environment for an employee. The harasser is often a supervisor, manager, or other person holding a position of authority, but can also be a co-worker.

Unlawful Termination:Unlawful termination is the unjust and illegal firing of a worker. Also known as wrongful termination or dismissal, the State of Texas protects workers who are at risk of termination because of their age, status, race, sex, creed, or religion.

Wage Disputes: Wage disputes involve legal controversies that relate to salaries, wages, or compensation for services rendered. This also includes pay for overtime hours or on days declared as rest days or holidays. In the event of nonpayment, the employee can pursue labor litigation and recover the amount due plus damages.
