Was Your Termination Lawful?
Texas is an at-will employment state. This means that, at any time, an employer can decide to end an employment relationship. In some cases, however, the grounds of your termination may be illegal.
At The Law Offices of Miller & Bicklein, P.C., we represent employees across Texas after a wrongful or illegal termination. With a combined 60 years of experience between our attorneys, we will thoroughly investigate what led to your termination as well as the conduct of your employer.
The Grounds Of Proving A Wrongful Or Illegal Termination
Employees terminated with little notice or without cause may question the reasoning behind their termination. Due to Texas’s at-will employment laws, grounds for wrongful termination must include illegal conduct or actions. Examples include terminating an employee due to:
- The employee’s status in a protected class, including based on race, gender, disability and more
- The employee’s complaint to a regulatory agency or to a manager on workplace conduct
- The employee’s complaints of sexual harassment or a hostile work environment
- The employee’s request for unpaid wages or overtime pay to be paid
- The employee’s filing of a workers’ compensation claim after a workplace injury
If you suspect that the grounds of your termination were illegal, we can assist by investigating your claim. Throughout this time, we will also advise you on how to proceed, including by refraining from acting out against the employer or engaging in any intimidating practices they may employ.
