Dallas Wrongful Termination Lawyers / Attorneys
Unjust and wrongful terminations occur on a daily basis. In Texas however not all wrongful terminations are actionable. Because Texas follows the ancient employee at-will doctrine a Texas employer may discharge an employee who does not have a contract of employment for little or no reason, and escape legal liability unless in addition to being wrongful the discharge is also illegal.
Causes of action for wrongful termination arise when an employer terminates against an employee for discriminatory, retaliatory or other illegal reasons. Such claims include but are not limited to terminations based on race, sex, age, national origin, religion or disability, or because the employee has opposed practices that involve such discrimination against themselves or others. Each termination presents a separate analytical problem and must be evaluated on its own particular facts.
