Claims Associated with Refusing to Perform an Illegal Act
Employers are legally prohibited from discharging or otherwise retaliating against an employee for the sole reason that the employee refused to perform some illegal act. So, though Texas is an at-will employment state, there is a good chance that you will have a case against your employer if they have taken any adverse employment action against you for such a refusal to act.
If your employer retaliated against you for refusing to perform any act that would have been illegal, you should speak with an Austin retaliation attorney about taking legal action against your employer.
