Can I File a Lawsuit Directly Against My Texas Employer for Workplace Rights Violations?

If your case involves issues such as discrimination, harassment, or retaliatory discharge, in many cases, you must file an employment law claim with a government agency before you can file a lawsuit in Texas. This process is known as “exhausting administrative remedies.”

Those agencies include, but are not limited to:

Our dedicated employment law attorneys can help file claims with the appropriate agency to investigate the claim. If they do not resolve it, they will issue a “right-to-sue” letter, which allows you to proceed with a lawsuit.

It’s important to note that there are strict deadlines, known as statutes of limitations, for filing claims with specific agencies. In many cases, the deadline can be as little as 180 days.

Given the complexity of Texas’s employment law and the various requirements, consulting with an employment law attorney is advisable to ensure that you correctly follow the necessary procedures and meet all deadlines for your specific type of claim. Our Marshall employment lawyers can assist you in filing complaints with relevant agencies and handle your claim directly after all administrative requirements have been exhausted.

What Legal Remedies Can I Pursue During a Texas Employment Law Claim?

When pursuing a Texas employment law claim, our clients may seek various legal remedies depending on the nature of their claim.

We will help outline what damages you may be entitled to, which may include:

  • Back Pay

Compensation for lost wages and benefits from the unlawful termination or discrimination until the judgment.

  • Reinstatement

Getting your job back and any seniority and benefits you would have accrued if the unlawful action had not occurred.

  • Front Pay

Compensation for future lost earnings due to unlawful conduct if reinstatement is not feasible or desirable.

  • Compensatory Damages

Compensation for emotional distress, pain and suffering, and other non-economic losses resulting from the unlawful conduct.

  • Punitive Damages

Punitive damages punish the employer for particularly egregious or malicious conduct and deter similar conduct. These are more common in cases involving intentional discrimination or retaliation.

  • Attorney’s Fees and Costs

Reimbursement for the legal fees and costs incurred in pursuing the claim.

  • Injunctive Relief

Court orders require the employer to take specific actions, such as implementing new policies or training programs to prevent future violations.

  • Liquidated Damages

In wage and hour violations, such as unpaid overtime, our clients may be entitled to liquidated damages, typically equal to unpaid wages. These are meant to compensate for the delay in receiving wages.
