Austin Section 1981 Rights Attorneys

Section 1981 of the Civil Rights Act of 1866 states that all people who are within the federal jurisdiction of the United States may create and enforce contracts regardless of race. Though these rights extend to virtually every contract, they provide critical rights to Austin employees whose employment contract has been violated by their employer in some manner.

With that in mind, the Austin Section 1981 rights attorneys at The Melton Law Firm have the experience and the resources to represent any Austin worker as they pursue a claim regarding the rights afforded to them by Section 1981.

Employee Rights Under Section 1981

As an at-will employment state, Texas workers will be protected by Section 1981 even if they do not have a formal signed contract with their employer. As such, Austin employees may enforce virtually any aspect of their contracts by using Section 1981 as their legal framework, including claims associated with the following aspects of their employment:

  • Hiring
  • Discharge
  • Terms and Conditions of Employment

Our Austin civil rights attorneys will do everything they possibly can to help you enforce the terms of your contract with your Austin employer.
