Fighting Workplace Discrimination In Texas

Everyone deserves a chance to get a job and succeed in their career. When these opportunities are taken away due to age, race, ethnic background or any other protected characteristic, it is not only unfair, but also illegal.

While many laws protect employees from discrimination in the workplace, some employers refuse to comply or do not bother to learn their responsibilities. If you have suffered due to any type of workplace discrimination in Texas, Franklin Law Firm, PLLC, is here to protect your rights and your future. Attorney Tanner Franklin is a passionate advocate for mistreated employees in Etoile and throughout Nacogdoches County and surrounding Texas communities.

Was It Discrimination?

Employers can terminate, demote and take other adverse actions against employees for a variety of valid reasons. How do you know if your case rises to the level of discrimination? Your employer may not fire you or treat you differently from other employees based on certain protected characteristics, such as:

  • Age
  • Race
  • National origin
  • Religion
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation
  • Pregnancy status

You do not have to have been fired to have a valid discrimination claim. If your employer demoted you, gave you an unfavorable job assignment or poor performance review, or in any way treated you unfavorably, and you suspect this treatment was based on discrimination, you may have an actionable claim. Discuss your case with an experienced employment lawyer who can help you explore your legal options.

A Legal Ally You Can Rely On

It may be daunting to face your employer, but you don’t have to face this problem alone. Attorney Tanner Franklin is here to help you understand Texas and federal discrimination laws and how they apply to your situation. If your case has merit, he will provide you with the strong representation you need to achieve a successful result.
