Texas Is A ‘Right-To-Work’ State

Due to the fact that 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. While “right to work” may sound as if the employee has certain rights to find fair employment, “right to work” is often referred to by legal professionals as “right-to-be-fired.” In effect, the “right to work” legislation prohibits certain union agreements. This means that an employer can reprimand or fire an employee and a union cannot step into the dispute. However, this does not mean that employees have no options when seeking a legal remedy to an employment dispute.

Know Your Options

For every aspect and rule at your workplace, you can be sure that there is a form of employment law and litigation that controls it. To this end, employment litigation can be incredibly complex to the average American worker, but it also means that you likely have a multitude of rights of which you were never aware. No matter what is going on at your job, if you think there might be some sort of violation at hand, talk to Patterson PC know about your situation.

We represent clients in the full range of employment litigation matters, including:

  • Arbitration agreements
  • Breach of employment contracts, including non-compete agreements and non-disclosure agreements
  • Discrimination against protected classes
  • Wage and hour disputes
  • Sexual harassment and other forms of workplace misconduct
  • Wrongful termination

Texas has strict statutes of limitations in place that will prevent an employee from filing an employment law claim if too much time has passed. In most cases — and especially those involving some form of discrimination — the claim must be filed with the state within 190 days of the first incident of issue, and within 300 days when filing your claim with the federal government. It is imperative that you speak to our Houston employment law attorney today to rebalance the scales and unstack the odds that were tipping against you.
