Filing a Wrongful Termination Lawsuit
Though most workers are considered to be employed “at-will” under Texas law, there are a few circumstances under which employers are prohibited from terminating their employees. When an employee is terminated under circumstances that are not considered legal, the employer can and should be held accountable for breaking the law. That being said, it is important to reach out to an attorney soon after you have been terminated if you believe your termination occurred under illegal circumstances.
Forms of Wrongful Termination in Texas
Employers who do break the law and terminate an employee under wrongful circumstances can be held accountable for a wide range of economic damages that the employee experienced as a result of their actions. That being said, employees who have been terminated from their employment due to one of the following reasons are likely to have a claim against their employer:
- Constructive discharge
- Unlawful discrimination
