What Are Your Employment Rights in Texas?
When a new employee is hired on to work for a company, they are typically
made aware of the conditions of their employment. In many cases, the rules
that regulate employee conduct are outlined in a handbook that contains
several protections as well as what to do if you believe your rights have
been violated. While these rules typically protect workers and companies
alike, employees have protections that extend to the state and federal
level. In fact, workers may be protected under the law whether they have
a physical contract or not.
Our firm can help with employee grievances including:
- Sexual harassment
- Unpaid overtime disputes
- Wage and hour claims
- Wrongful termination
It is important to note that specific laws and regulations may differ depending
on factors such as the industry you work in, how your position is classified,
and the number of hours you work. For example, certain professions, such
as farmhands, are classified as independent contractors and may not be
eligible for overtime pay. The technical complexity of many employment
law violations demands the attention of knowledgeable attorneys, like
those from our firm, who can help you understand your case and navigate
the legal process.
