Neel, Hooper & Banes, P.C. the Houston TX. wrongful termination attorneys you can count on.
In the State of Texas the majority workers are employed ‘at-will’. This means that both worker and employers may choose to terminate their working relationship for any reason. However, there are different laws that limit the explanations that an employer may legitimately have to end a worker’s employment. If an ex employee believes that his or her termination from a job you provided them was wrongful and feels that your company has violated their rights to employment, you will most likely need to be seeking out legal representation of a wrongful termination attorney to represent your company and you. A Houston wrongful termination attorney from Neel, Hooper & Banes, P.C. can work with you to gather and review all the important details of your case, guide you thru the legal process, and provide you the legal representation you will need.
Do I Need An Attorney If I Have Fired An Employee?
If the termination of the employee was legal, then no, hiring an attorney will not be required. But if the employee feels or has reason to believe that the firing was unjustified they may file legal claim against your company. Someone who feels that they have been wrongfully terminated from a job has the legal right to seek and receive compensation to cover the immediate costs of losing a job. An experienced labor and employment attorney who knows the ins-and-outs of Texas employment law can determine whether your termination was legal, how much it could cost you, and what the best next course of action will be. Some companies have took it upon themselves to try and fight wrongful termination cases alone, but the chances of receiving a favorable outcome are greatly increased with the help of a qualified labor and employment attorney. An attorney from Neel, Hooper & Banes, P.C. for example, could review the details of your case, handle all the necessary paperwork, investigation, and negotiations for a favorable outcome for your company.
