Refusing to Perform an Illegal Act
Austin employers may not discharge employees for simply refusing to perform an illegal act, despite the fact that employment in the state of Texas is at-will. That being said, the first thing that you will need to do is demonstrate that the only reason you were fired was because you declined to break the law.
If your employer has taken adverse employment action against you for refusing to perform an illegal act, the Austin retaliation attorneys at The Melton Law Firm can help you assess what legal action may now be necessary for you to recover compensation.
