Trusted Injury Trial Lawyers That You Can Rely On

Seeking Justice For Wrongful Termination

Both Texas and New Mexico are “at-will employment” states, which means that your employer does not need a reason to fire you. However, this does not mean that there are no situations in which it is illegal for them to fire you. In these cases, a wrongful termination claim can provide you with compensation for your job loss.

At Flores Mendez Law, our team of attorneys has more than 30 years of combined experience defending employees and their rights. Among the most serious violations of employee rights is wrongful termination, and we are committed to helping all our clients attain the outcome they deserve in their wrongful termination claims. When you work with us, we will stand by your side through every step of the process.

The Steps Of A Wrongful Termination Claim

Being fired only qualifies as a wrongful termination in certain situations, such as if the employer chose to fire an employee due to discrimination. You also likely have a wrongful termination claim on your hands if you were fired for reasons such as refusing to break the law or violate company policies, taking permitted time off, having a child or becoming pregnant, or as an act of retaliation.

After your termination, there are some steps you can take to improve the outcome of your wrongful termination claim, including:

  • Collect any evidence related to your termination and quality of employment, including termination paperwork and recent employee reviews.
  • Document any interaction you have with your former employer; it’s best to either communicate with them through email or text or record the conversations you have.
  • File a complaint with the HR department and obtain a copy of the complaint to confirm they are aware of the issue.
  • Contact our office to pursue filing a lawsuit for the termination and to earn the compensation you deserve.

We can guide you through the claim process to ensure you are pursuing the optimal outcome in your lawsuit and are sending the message that your employer cannot get away with wrongfully firing you.
