Texas is an employment at will state, which means that an employer has the right to terminate an employee for a good, bad or no reason at all with limited exceptions such as state and federal anti-discrimination statues, which provide protection in some instances to persons in certain categories, such as race, gender, or disability discrimination, or a refusal to commit an illegal act that would subject you to criminal penalties. An employee may have additional rights if there was a written employment contract.
This employee needs to be warned, written up and terminated if this behavior fails to stop.
