Student attendance fraud leads to wrongful discharge of teacher

It is the responsibility of a teacher to keep accurate records of the attending students. This ensures that the school is compliant with regulations. If a Texas teacher is asked to alter information unethically, he or she may, in turn, decide to inform others of the request. Speaking out for what is right in the workplace may not always be rewarded with positive reinforcement, however. In some cases, it may lead to a wrongful discharge.

Women denied the right to pump file discrimination claims

The idea that all women stay at home and do not return to work post pregnancy has become outdated. More women than ever are going back to the work force to help provide for the family. Women in Texas are increasingly looking toward taking a more natural approach to health with their children, and one of those ways is by breastfeeding. However, this parental act of love is now becoming a discrimination nightmare in some places of employment.

Robbery victim files discrimination claim after returning to work

After suffering from a workplace trauma, sometimes it can be difficult for an employee to get right back to work. In some cases there can be more long-lasting effects. When a Texas worker returns after recovery, he or she expects to be returned to the position that was held previously. The last thing that most returning workers would expect is the need to file a discrimination claim.

Storage worker seeks 4,000 hours in unpaid overtime pay

The Fair Labor Standards Act protects workers by requiring that they receive the proper pay for the number of hours worked. Under this federal law, employees in Texas and elsewhere that work more than 40 hours per week are required to receive overtime pay. Often, a team member is misclassified as an independent contractor instead of an employee, and if designated as such, the worker is not eligible for that type of compensation. When this happens, a worker may miss out on a significant amount in their paycheck.

Americans with Disabilities Act suit filed for government worker

All people deserve to have a safe and pleasant work environment that is free from unfair treatment. According to the Americans with Disabilities Act, employers can not treat their disabled employees less favorably than other employees. These Texas team members are to be treated with the same respect and dignity as anyone else.
