Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello, and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today.
Do you have a lawyer representing your company yet?
That's the first thing to do.
That was another question, is this something that needs to be represented by a lawyer?
It is a much better idea to be represented for a number of reasons.
They can still file a charge of discrimination with the EEOC as well, but that has to be done within 300 days in Texas. The lawyer may be able to stretch this out past that date and cut off one potential area of liability.
The lawyer also knows how to phrase things to get the best results.
You have to answer a lot of questions and provide a lot of different documents and knowing how to phrase this just right makes it less likely the ex-employee would succeed.
Ok, then we will reach out to an attorney and go from there.
It is actually pretty hard for an employee to win these kind of cases in Texas so long as the employer doesn't mess up.
Anything else I can assist you with?
No that is great information. Thank you.
Best wishes to you. Please don't forget to leave a Positive Rating (of course I'd suggest Excellent) so I get credit for my work.
I sure will!
