Employer Liability Defense
Expertise Helping Employers Manage Legal Disputes
Employment Liability Defense is an area of labor law existing that prohibits an employer from discharging an employee. It deals with wrongful termination, sexual harassment, discrimination, invasion of privacy, false imprisonment, breach of contract, emotional distress, and wage and hour law violations.
Although employment law in Texas follows the at-will doctrine, employers cannot not terminate or otherwise discriminate against employers based on race, religion, national origin, religion, gender, sexual harassment, disability, and pregnancy. Additionally, employers may not retaliate against an employee because he or she complains of one these forms of employment discrimination.
