Wrongful Termination – Although certain states require a worker to have an employment agreement to prevent a dismissal without just cause, a Houston employer cannot dismiss an employee for any illegal reason, as in the case of pregnancy, for example, even when no official employee contract exists. Termination is illegal when based on age, race, gender or disability, or because you have filed a claim or required to take a medical leave. Firings based on sexual orientation however are subject to certain jurisdictions according to recent laws. Compensation for a wrongful termination may include lost benefits, retroactive wages, and loss of potential future pay and in some case reinstatement of your job.
