Wrongful termination claims may help voice concerns in Texas

When an individual is dismissed from his or her job without cause, he or she may want to consider seeking restitution. Filing wrongful termination claims could potentially help interested individuals work toward rectifying the situation. A successful claim could potentially lead to the necessary parties being held liable for unjust actions.

FMLA violations could affect Texas workers

When employees suffer from medical conditions, they may need time away from work. Certain absences may qualify for coverage under the Family and Medical Leave Act, or FMLA. This federal law requires employers to provide unpaid leave for such qualifying instances and protect workers from losing their jobs due to such leave. However, there may be instances in which employers violate this act. There is no corresponding state FMLA law in Texas.

Contract disputes may lead to lawsuits in Texas

Being under stress due to employment issues can cause many individuals to feel overwhelmed. When the issues pertain to contract negotiations, the situation may seem even more difficult to address. Contract disputes may cause individuals to feel the need to take drastic action in order to ensure that their voices are being heard. As a result, they may wish to find out more on their legal rights and options for negotiations. 

Texas workers with disabilities may fear workplace discrimination

Being looked at differently due to having a disability can be a hurtful but, unfortunately, common action that many individuals face. Though most instances of this may be overlooked, there are cases in which being considered unfit due to an unrelated disability may be cause for legal action. If an individual has faced workplace discrimination due to having a disability, he or she may wish to consider potential legal options.

Retaliation could lead to wrongful termination cases in Texas

Losing a job is never a pleasant experience. Individuals may feel even more upset over being fired if they believe the dismissal came about due to retaliation. Employees may be placed in compromising positions while on the job, but if they choose to report wrongdoings and are then terminated from their jobs, they may wish to assess their state of affairs and determine whether legal action could be in their best interests.
