Contact Counsel Before Terminating Employees

/cdklawyers.com// 09/06/2010

In Texas, well-settled law allows an employer to terminate an at-will employee for a good reason, a bad reason, or no reason at all, as long as the termination is not based on a characteristic of the employee that is protected by law (ie: a person’s race, pregnancy, or religious affiliation).  Even so, terminating employees can present challenges for employers. 

While many terminations are handled without much fuss, if an employer believes a termination could be difficult, the employer would be wise to contact employment law counsel prior to acting.  An employment law attorney can guide an employer through difficult situations and help an employer craft a termination plan designed to minimize further problems.  For example, if an employer suspects that an employee has taken confidential information or if an employer fears an employee may pursue a retaliation claim, the employer can benefit from the advice of counsel to ensure that the necessary steps and precautions are taken during the termination process.

To speak to Dallas employment counsel about a potential firing or another employment law issue, contact the Dallas employment and labor law firm of Clouse Dunn Khoshbin LLP at [email protected].
