Employees are Protected Under State and Federal Laws
In Texas, employees are generally employed “at will”. This means that an employer may terminate your employment at any time for essentially any reason. An employer is not required to even give you a reason for termination. Similarly, you have a right to leave or quit a job, with or without a reason. Thus, an employer may terminate you, or you can leave—with or without reasons.
Even though a Texas employer may terminate your employment at any time for any reason [at will], an employer may not terminate you for illegally motivated reasons. Employees do have a broad range of legal protections from termination or retaliation. Those legal protections stem from State and Federal laws designed to protect employees from being unlawfully discriminated against, retaliated against or terminated.
When employees are denied promotions, demoted, written up, or terminated, an employer may be motivated by reasons that violate State or Federal law.
Employees and executives do have legal rights and protections under State and Federal law.
Discrimination is prohibited under a wide range of state and federal labor and employment laws. The primary federal law barring workplace discrimination is Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. You also have additional protections from other federal laws such as the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) or the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). Additionally, Texas state law, specifically Chapter 21 of the Texas Labor Code, provides employees and executives similar protections against workplace discrimination. Our Austin, Texas labor and employment lawyer has the skills and knowledge to help you navigate state and federal discrimination laws

- repeated statements by a supervisor or manager regarding your age, race, gender, religion, or pregnancy ;
- treating other employees better than you and those employees may be younger, or a different race or gender
- or, treating you worse by writing you up, suspending you or terminating you for similar disciplinary infractions
- making inappropriate jokes, comments or statements about an employee or executive’s race, age, gender, religion, pregnancy;
- sending inappropriate text messages or Facebook posts that relate to an employee or executive race, age, gender, religion or pregnancy.
