I had a boob job was off work 2 days put on light duty which was totally ignored by my boss. I worked 2 weeks and no one said anything to my boss. I took off to go to the doctor and at 445 pm i get a text from my boss saying i was fired due to exposing myself at work. Which I did not. So how can I be fired over false accusations. With no proof what so ever
Based on your post, I am guessing there may be issues of sex discrimination going on here. I suggest you speak with an attorney and discuss what has occurred.
This response is only general information and is not legal advice. It does not form an attorney-client relationship and should not be relied upon to take or refrain from taking any action. You should seek a qualified attorney before taking any action related to your inquiry.
Texas is an employment at will state. Typically, unless an employee has an employment contract, or is employed under a collective bargaining agreement through a union, the employer can modify or terminate the employment at any time with or without cause for any non-discriminatory reason. However, an employer generally cannot alter or terminate employment for prohibited discriminatory reasons (such as racial discrimination), or in retaliation for certain protected actions (such as whistle-blowing). The description of the situation which you have provided does not include the elements of prohibited discrimination.
Additionally, employers are not required to treat all employees the same, so long as the disparate treatment is not part of prohibited discrimination or retaliation (as described above).
