Whistleblower wins retaliation and wrongful termination lawsuit

In Texas, there are protections in place for whistleblowers under both federal and state law. Whistleblowers are people who report co-workers for breaking laws or committing industry violations. Employers are forbidden from retaliating against employees who report colleagues, management or even executives for committing illegal acts.

Firing employees who report unsafe working conditions is illegal

Texas employees who work in conditions that are unsafe and unhealthy have a legal right to report their employers to federal agencies like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. At least 22 statutes protect whistleblowers from retaliation initiated by their employers after filing a complaint about illegal activity. Prohibitions against retaliation encompass many forms of adverse actions, such as job termination, demotion, cut in hours, cut in pay, harassment, intimidation and denial of benefits.

Officer fired after 18 years; files wrongful termination lawsuit

When different personalities and expectations merge in the work place, conflicts may arise. Unfortunately, not all conflicts can be resolved peacefully, which can sometimes result in accusations and hostile work environments. For example, one Texas police officer has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against his superiors after he was suspended indefinitely.
