Whistleblower Protection Lawyers
If you have been terminated from your job or seriously retaliated against in some other way for reporting illegal activity, you may have strong recourse under applicable laws. As a Texas state government employee, you must file a grievance and complete other specific administrative procedures. A different course of action may apply for federal employees, and private-sector employees must typically file a charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and secure the right to sue.
