Main claims discrimination after being fired for cell phone use

In many employee handbooks, the use of cell phones is strictly prohibited in work areas and they are to be used only in break rooms or away from the public. For some Texas businesses, using a cell phone in certain areas can even be dangerous. Employees who violate this policy, regardless of any discriminatory factors, should be punished equally to one another. If one employee is receiving preferential treatment over another because of his or her race, the company may be headed for a discrimination lawsuit.
