We Fight for Your Rights in the Workplace

In many ways, work is essential to life. Work provides you with opportunities to advance in your career, support yourself and your loved ones, and maintain access to important benefits such as health insurance. However, all this can be taken away at the drop of a hat, and many workers are unsure what to do when they face seemingly unfair treatment from their employers.

When Employees May Take Legal Action Against Texas Employers

Because Texas is an at-will employment state, the law typically does not require employers to provide reason for doing any of the following:

  • Termination
  • Demotion
  • Requiring an employee to accept a different position
  • Denying pay raises and bonuses
  • Denying promotions

This makes it challenging to gauge the lawfulness of your employer’s reasons for firing you or treating you unfavorably, and most workers in the state of Texas do not have wrongful termination rights. However, you may be able to hold your employer accountable and file an employment lawsuit against them if they have violated any of the stipulations contained in the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) by doing any of the following:

  • Requiring you to work for less than minimum wage
  • Failing to pay you for working overtime
  • Failing to adhere to hour and labor restrictions for employees under age 18
  • Punishing whistleblowers or people who speak out about illegal or unfair practices in the workplace or by the employer
  • Incorrectly classifying an employee as exempt

You may also be able to take action against your employer if you believe they have fired, demoted, or otherwise treated you unfairly for reasons pertaining to your race, gender, family life, or other protected status.
