Best Lawyers Against The State Of Texas For On The Job Injury?

A: The Texas Workers Compensation Act and the Federal Employer’s Liability Act both protect an employee from being fired or demoted because of a work related injury. Whether or not you can be fired for on the job injuries depends on your employment status. If you are an at-will employee, then either side of this issue can fire you without cause (civil rights laws). If however, your employment is governed by a union agreement, then only the union may terminate you based upon any work related injury, even if it is pre existing and/or was not caused by anything other than normal workplace activity occurring in the course of employment (labor law).
