Nursing Home Workers

The Texas Health and Safety Code makes it unlawful for an employer to retaliate against an employee of a nursing home who exercises his or her statutory duty to report incidents of abuse or neglect of residents to state licensing authorities or to the police. There are very specific and stringent procedural requirements and time limitations that apply to any such claims for retaliation. A good Austin nursing home retaliation lawyer will have significant knowledge and experience in this area. We do.
