I am familiar with the state of Texas and your agency.The state does not pay for comp time, sick leave can be credited toward your rule of 80 but you may still be short.You may want to argue some kind of discrimination here--age, sex, race and file a complaint with EEOC.This offers you the best protection and if they issue a right to sue letter might get you severance and other damages.
If you believe that you have been discriminated against at work because of your race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information, youcan file a Charge of Discrimination. All of the laws enforced by EEOC, except for the Equal Pay Act, require you to file a Charge of Discrimination with us before you can file a job discrimination lawsuit against your employer. In addition, an individual, organization, or agency may file a charge on behalf of another person in order to protect theaggrieved person's identity. There are time limits for filing a charge
It has been my experience if EEOC finds in your favor they would make you an offer for severance of say 6 months to a year.You would have right then to sue if unresolved.
I am so sorry that this happened to you.EEOC protects you as an at will employee and might allow you to file for UI benefits claiming termination
was based on discrimination.
You are not going to get paid for the comp time or sick leave, on that issue I am so sorry but there is no federal or state law that requires them to pay you.You should get service credit for the sick leave.
I know you have a lot going on here, please let me know if you have more questions be happy to respond.
If you can positive rate 5 stars when we are done it is always much appreciated.
