Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Thank you for using our forum. My name is ***** ***** I hope to assist you today.
I am very sorry to learn of this unfortunate treatment at your workplace.
What you describe is harassment.
If I understand correctly, you have already spoken to an attorney, and the lawyer advised you to both file a complaint with the labor commission, and to seek out another attorney that specialized in employment law.
Is there a more specific question I can answer for you today or were you seeking confirmation before going to the time and effort of seeking out an employment law attorney?
You can file your own small claims lawsuit (this allows you to sue your employer for up to $10,000.00 quickly and easily without having to retain an attorney).
You can find information on small claims suits in TX here: https://www.depts.ttu.edu/sls/forms/How-to-Sue-in-Small-Claims-Court.pdf
(Remember, you can do this at the same time that you file your complaint with the Workforce Commission, the two remedies are not exclusive of one another).
