Wrongful Termination

Texas is an “employment at-will” state which generally means that an employee can resign at any time for any reason and an employer can terminate an employee at any time for any lawful reason. If an employee is terminated for an unlawful reason, then the termination is often called a “wrongful termination.” There are many reasons why a termination could be considered a wrongful termination and, whether you are an employee or employer, it may be in your best interests to consult with an experienced and knowledgeable Austin wrongful termination lawyer if an employment termination has occurred or is being considered. Examples of wrongful terminations include those where an employer fires an employee in breach of an employment contract; the firing is motivated by illegal discrimination; the firing is done in retaliation for filing a workers’ compensation claim; or, the firing is intended as retaliation against a whistleblower or an employee who has refused to perform an illegal act.
