Employment Law for Employees in Fort Worth

Tarrant County Employment Law for Employees Lawyer

Attorney for Workplace Discrimination, Harassment, & More

While not every adult needs to work for pay, many do. Employment is non-optional for most people, who need their income to support themselves and their families. This can put employees in a very precarious position when something unjust happens to them at work. Workplace harassment and discrimination can make it impossible for a person to meaningfully perform their job duties. Wrongful termination can create undeserved hardship. If you are facing unlawful treatment from your employer or former employer, you may have recourse in a court of law.

Hutchison & Foreman, PLLC is dedicated to helping workers combat employment violations. We take a stand in court to guard the rights of employees in Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico, in addition to taking on federal cases. Our highly experienced lawyers aggressively combat unlawful employer actions because we fully understand the impact they can have on a person and their family.

Workplace Sexual Harassment Attorney

Walking into your place of business each day is not something you should dread due to a fear of sexual harassment. This type of harassment is an ongoing problem for many people in the workforce. While women are generally the most common targets, sexual harassment can happen to anyone. If you are experiencing behaviors like unwanted touching or grabbing or frequent sexually suggestive remarks, you may have a cause of action.

Fort Worth Attorney for Hostile Work Environment

A hostile work environment is one in which you face unlawful discrimination or other illegal or unethical treatment. It is more than having an unpleasant workspace or rude coworkers - you must also have another claim contributing to the hostility of your work environment. You should not have to suffer through a hostile work environment, and you may have legal options for addressing this issue.

Legal Help After Wrongful Termination

Both Texas and New Mexico are at-will employment states, meaning that employees can be fired for almost any reason, or even without a reason. However, there are limitations. Employees may not be fired due to their membership in a constitutionally protected group. It is also illegal to fire an employee for blowing the whistle or for seeking compensation after a work injury. If you believe that you have been terminated for an illegal reason, we may be able to help.

Texas Lawyers Enforcing Whistleblower Protections

It takes a great deal of courage to come forward and report illegal, unsafe, or unethical conduct by your employer. It can also expose you to the risk of unlawful retaliation by your employer. If you were fired, demoted, or subjected to a hostile work environment after blowing the whistle, the law is generally on your side. Our legal advocates will strive to ensure that you suffer no ill consequences for becoming a whistleblower.

Law Firm Fighting Back Against Workplace Discrimination

No one should ever be discriminated against based on their religion, race, gender, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or disability status (unless a disability would prevent the person from performing their job duties even with reasonable accommodations). If you were dismissed or passed over for hiring or promotion, specifically due to your membership in a constitutionally protected group, you have likely faced illegal discrimination. Our lawyers will do everything we can to combat unlawful and discriminatory conduct in the workplace.
