Austin Wrongful Termination Attorney
Under Texas law, most workers are considered to be employed “at-will.” This means that both worker and employer may choose to terminate their working relationship for almost any reason. However, a number of different laws limit the reasons for which an employer may legitimately choose to end a worker’s employment. In cases in which a worker was wrongfully terminated, it may be possible to pursue legal action in order to recover compensation from the employer.
Wrongful termination cannot and should not be considered acceptable, and employers who violate the rights of their workers in choosing to terminate their position need to be held accountable. At The Melton Law Firm, we know how difficult it can be for Austin employees to cope with the repercussions of a wrongful termination on their own, both financially and emotionally. Fortunately, with the help of a skilled and understanding lawyer, many victims in this situation are able to get the justice and closure they need.
Types of Wrongful Termination
Wrongful termination can occur in a number of different circumstances, including any of the following:
- Unlawful discrimination
- Constructive discharge
When an employee is fired from their job due to these reasons, it can be considered wrongful termination and grounds for filing a lawsuit against the employer.
