Were you terminated from your position? Denied a promotion? Did your employer refuse to make a reasonable accommodation you needed due to your disability or religious belief? Did you lose a promotion because your employer said you were too old? You might have an employment discrimination claim.
These are common scenarios that can be the basis for a discrimination claim. There are federal and state laws that prohibit employers from discriminating against employees due to their race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, genetics, or pregnancy. Additionally, an employer is prohibited from paying women less than men when they do the same job.
Having problems at work can have a severe effect on your mental and physical health. Texas is an at-will employment state, meaning you can be terminated for no reason at all. Your manager or supervisor may be the most terrible person in the world, but that does not mean you can sue him/her for any disciplinary action that occurs or action you do not agree with. However, your manager cannot terminate your employment or treat you unfavorably due to any discriminatory animus (race, color, religion, etc.).
