Retaliation Against Texas Executives
When an executive reports a company’s violation to do the right thing, they often become subject to retaliation from their employer. Retaliation comes in many forms. However, there are a few common occurrences.
- Wrongful termination
- Loss of opportunities
- Denial of promotions
- Other executive cases
Under Texas law and federal law, it is illegal for employers to retaliate against employees who file a charge for discrimination or participate in a claim of discrimination. Our executive representation team will help you fight if your employer violated your rights.
Retaliation & the EEOC
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) considers the following actions to be retaliation.
- Unfavorable changes to promotions, assignments, training, and benefits
Texas Labor Code Chapter 21 (Chapter 21) protects employees from retaliation by their employers. Moreover, they also gain protection from these federal laws: Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (Title VII), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
