We frequently handle cases involving:

Employment Discrimination- Laws enforced by EEOC protect employees from employment discrimination. An employer cannot mistreat you because of your race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or age.

Wrongful Termination- If you were wrongfully terminated because you did not want to risk doing something illegal, hiring a lawyer may be essential to protect your case.

Sexual harassment- Unwanted sexual advances, either verbal or physical, or requests for sexual favors, is considered sexual harassment. It doesn't matter if it is another co-worker, boss, or another manager; if you were sexually harassed while at the workplace, you can hire a lawyer to act on your behalf and defend your rights.

Sex, Gender, Pregnancy- If you have been discriminated against and treated differently because of your sex, gender, or because of your pregnancy, Texas laws protect you against such treatment.

Retaliation- Certain laws forbid employers from punishing job applicants or employees for asserting their rights to be free from employment discrimination. If you have been retaliated against, an employment lawyer can seek justice on your behalf.

Age- Certain laws prohibit employers from discriminating against applicants and employees based on age. Employers must consider your skills and experience.

Disability- These laws protect individuals from employers who treat qualified and skilled individuals unfavorably because of a disability or percieved disability.

Race or national origin- Our laws prohibits employers from treating an individual unfavorably because they are from a different country, or because of race, color, culture or nationality.

Whistleblower cases- If your employer is a government agency that knowingly violates any laws or regulations, please contact a discrimination lawyer to discuss the situation. We can help you navigate through this process.

Family Medical Leave Act- The Family Medical Leave Act protects employees from being terminated and allows them to take unpaid time off to address a health issue or an immediate family medical issue.

Workers' compensation retaliation- Employers cannot retaliate against an employee who reports a work-related injury. If you have been terminated after reporting a work-related injury, an employment discrimination lawyer can help you fight your case.
