Not unless you can show that the real reason you were terminated was for discriminatory reasons, such as discrimination based on race, gender, age, religion, national origin or sexual orientation, or unless you were discharged in retaliation for refusing to comply with an illegal directive of the employer, or for engaging in certain other protected activities, or if the employment contract or collective bargaining agreement provides that the employee can only be discharged for cause. Absent these factors, Texas' at will employment law dictates that you do not have a wrongful termination claim. You may wish to consullt with a Texas employee rights attorney.
