Outstanding Austin Employment Attorneys Fighting Illegal Termination
Crews Law Firm, PC represents employees who have been fired, terminated or laid off (or who believe they may soon be fired or terminated) for illegal reasons. In Texas, a termination is illegal and can be challenged if it violates certain specific laws. These laws include the discrimination laws that employers cannot fire an employee because of age, disability, sex, pregnancy, race or national origin, or religion. Laws also prohibit terminating an employee in retaliation for opposing these kinds of discrimination or terminating an employee in retaliation for other legally protected activity. There are also other specific laws that may apply to certain kinds of terminations.
Being terminated from a job can be devastating to you and your family. Crews Law Firm is experienced and knowledgeable about the laws that protect employees and has helped hundreds of people in these difficult situations. If you have been terminated, our attorneys can advise you on your rights and whether you may have a claim. We will give you our honest opinion whether you have a claim, discuss your legal options, and fight to help our clients who have been treated illegally.
If you have not yet been fired but are concerned you may soon be terminated or are having problems regarding your current employment, Crews Law Firm can advise you on how to best handle the situation. In some circumstances, there may be ways to prevent a termination or to protect your legal rights and ensure you are in the best possible circumstance before you are terminated. We regularly meet with current employees to discuss workplace issues, and believe that knowing your legal rightscan be extremely important in these difficult situations.
