Discrimination? Retaliation? Hostile work environment? Unpaid wages?
When workers have concerns about unfair employment practices, they deserve answers from qualified professionals.
The purpose of the Texas Employment Lawyer blog is to help Texas workers know and understand their rights and cover the latest in employment news.
Texas is not an employee friendly state. Being an at-will employment state means that Texas employers can fire an employee for any reason or no reason at all. However, there are many laws that provide protections to employees.
For instance, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects employees from discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, and sex. The Americans with Disabilities Act protects workers from discrimination based on a disability or perceived disability, and further requires that employers provide reasonable work accommodations. There are other laws that protect employees from age discrimination, protect their wages, require employers to allow employees to take family and medical leave, and ensure safe working conditions. These are just some of the laws that might provide a worker with protection.
Our Texas employment lawyers in Austin or Houston run and manage the Texas Employment Lawyer blog so that it may serve as a resource for employees. Our attorneys hope that the information provided will assist in protecting the rights of employees facing discrimination and other unfair employment practices in the state of Texas. Here, our attorneys not only want to discuss the law, but because no blog can fully cover all aspects of the law, our attorneys hope that the information provided prompts employees to ask more questions when they are thinking, “Can they really do that to me?” or “Is that legal?”
The blog is just that – a resource. Employment law is a complex area of the law. And, because every employee will have a work experience that is unique to them, it is recommended that workers with employment concerns consult with an attorney. If you need someone to hear your story, give you legal advice based upon the facts specific to what you are experiencing at work, and give you a voice, we encourage you to contact one of our Austin or Houston employment lawyers to schedule a consultation.
The attorneys who operate the Texas Employment Lawyer blog focus their practice solely on the rights of employees. Combined, attorneys Robert J. Wiley, Colin W. Walsh, Kalandra N. Wheeler, Jairo N. Castellanos, and Julie St. John have over 40 years of employment law experience.

If you are dealing with discrimination or retaliation, working in a hostile work environment, or concerned about safety at work, our attorneys can help.
