Texas is a “Right-to-Work” State
Employment litigation issues in Texas can be particularly troublesome for
individuals seeking justice after their employer has done them wrong due
to the fact that Texas is a “right-to-work” state. While this
may sound as if the employee has certain rights to find fair employment,
it is often referred to by legal professionals and employment grounds
as a “right-to-be-fired” state, as the legislation prohibits
union security agreements. This means that an employer can penalize their
employees however they see fit and no union group can step between them.
not mean that employees have no options when seeking legal remedy.
