Legal Resources

Even in an at-will state like Texas, not all job terminations are done for legal reasons. Federal and Texas state laws prohibit workplace discrimination, including age discrimination, gender/sex discrimination, disability discrimination, race discrimination, color discrimination, discrimination based on pregnancy, and discrimination based on genetic information. In addition, we often counsel clients regarding a variety of laws beyond anti-discrimination statutes that govern the employer/ employee relationship, including those listed below. We regularly represent clients in employment discrimination cases and other matters in Dallas, Fort Worth, West Texas and beyond. If you believe your rights have been violated, it is in your best interest to discuss your options with an attorney, and, as there are often short deadlines to meet in employment cases, this should be done quickly. We frequently answer our clients’ questions that involve the following employment laws:


  • Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Americans with Disabilities Act, as Amended (ADAAA)
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (race, color, religion, sex and national origin)
  • The Pregnancy Discrimination Act
  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
  • Genetic Non-Discrimination Act (GINA)
  • Equal Pay Act
  • Whistle Blower Protections
  • State Statutes and Common Law
  • Contract Law
  • Non-compete Agreements
