What Qualifies as Wrongful Termination in Texas?

Under state and federal laws, employees are protected from being wrongfully terminated, regardless of being an at-will state. There are strict employment guidelines that employers are required to follow, even when terminating an employee. Our legal team is extremely compassionate towards what you have suffered, and we are extremely educated about employment law, allowing us to help you effectively.

The following are examples of terms for wrongful termination:

  • Disability
  • Religious beliefs
  • Gender
  • Race
  • Sexual orientation
  • Age discrimination
  • Retaliation
  • Harassment

Are you suspecting you got fired unlawfully? Knowing whether your termination qualifies as unlawful can be difficult and understanding the next steps to take can be hard as well.

If you fear you have been wrongfully terminated, ask yourself these questions to determine if you have a valid wrongful termination claim:

  • Are you in possession of any circumstantial or direct evidence that you were discriminated against?
  • When you got fired, did other employees of the same gender, race, etc. get laid off as well?
  • Do you experience that employees of similar age, race or gender all are being treated differently by your employer?
  • Have you experienced specific actions that suggest favoritism or bias towards only a group of employees?
  • Did you experience insulting or offensive comments from an employer?
  • Did your employer ever represent him/herself sexually to you in an unwelcome manner?
  • Prior to your termination, were any complaint or reports towards your company filed?
  • If complaints or reports were filed, did you experience any negative backlash from your employer?
  • In your written employment contract, are there listed specific reasons why your employer could fire you?
  • Were any verbal promises made regarding the security of your job?

Did you answer “yes” to any of these? Then you might have a case against your employer. Contact our wrongful termination lawyer in Houston today to discuss your case!
