What is Texas Employment Law?
Employment law focuses exclusively on the legal relationship between an employer and their employees. If an employee is subject to unlawful employment practices in the form of wrongful termination, breach of contract, or unpaid overtime, they have the right to pursue legal action.
Texas employment law regulates employment procedures including the hiring process, job duties, wages, promotions, benefits, the work environment, employment reviews, and termination.
As a Texas employee, you are entitled to legal rights in the workplace, which include the freedom from any form of discrimination, the right to privacy, and fair compensation. If your rights have been violated, lawyer Dan A. Atkerson can advise you as to the most effective way to proceed and advocate on your behalf.
