It is illegal for an employer to fire you for filing a workers’ compensation claim. Normally, Texas is a “right-to-work” state—meaning that your employer can fire you for almost any reason, but seeking workers’ comp benefits is a big exception to the “at-will rule.”
You Have Rights, and We’re Here to Help You Fight This Illegal Behavior
If you have evidence that you were fired because you filed a claim for workers’ comp, then you may have a case. For example, if management discourages you from filing a workers’ comp claim, or if they make negative comments about the fact that you already filed a claim, and then they fire you (or take other adverse employment actions) you may have a wrongful termination case.
