Texas Wrongful Termination
The people who get fired often don’t deserve it, and some dismissals even rise to the level of wrongful termination. If you were let go by your employer, you might be wondering whether they were within their legal right to do so.

What Is Wrongful Termination?
To be wrongfully terminated is to be dismissed for a reason that violates state or federal law. Texas is an “at-will” employment state, meaning that employers can terminate an employee for nearly any reason. However, there are circumstances which allow workers to challenge a dismissal, which we detail below.
What Are Some Examples of Wrongful Termination?
If you were dismissed by your employer, you may have grounds for legal action if:
- You were discriminated against. It’s against the law for Texas employers to fire someone on the basis of protected traits such as race, age, disability, and national origin.
- Your employer breached a contract. If you had a contract with your employer promising you job security and you were dismissed without good cause, you may have a case for wrongful termination.
- Your employer retaliated against you. Your employer can’t legally fire you for exercising legal rights such as filing a harassment complaint or blowing the whistle on unlawful conduct.
- You filed a workers’ compensation claim. If you were dismissed because you filed a workers’ compensation claim, you may have a case for compensation.
