About Texas Employment Laws

Discrimination and unfair treatment in the workplace can come in many different shapes and forms. For example, it is illegal for an employer to fire, demote, or harass a worker based on any of the aforementioned characteristics. If you do file a lawsuit against your employer, you should know that you first have to file a Charge of Discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and there is a time limit to do so. Also, there is a cap on the amount of damages you will be able to recover. Employers with 100 employees or fewer have a cap of $50,000 and those with more than 500 employees have a cap of $300,000.

Additionally, Texas law:

  • Protects whistleblowers
  • Prohibits discriminatory advertising of jobs
  • Promotes competitive job opportunities for individuals with disabilities
  • Provides assistance locating and sustaining employment to people in certain Medicaid waiver programs
