Texas: A Right-to-Work State
Texas is a right-to-work state, meaning that individuals are free to choose
whether to join a labor union - but cannot be denied employment based
on this choice. Both union and non-union members in the state of Texas
have the same employment rights.
If you are being pressured to participate in a labor union-type of organization,
or believe that you face retaliation for not accepting these conditions,
you may have a case against your employer.
Texas Laws Regarding Termination
In Texas, an employee can be terminated for any reason, as long as that
reason does not violate the law. For example, an employer can fire an
employee if he or she does not like the employee. However, the employer
cannot fire an employee on the basis of age, sex, race, religion, or national origin.
