Did you know that Texas is an employment at will state? This doctrine governs how the relationship between employers and workers functions. An employer can terminate an employee at any time for almost any reason. Likewise, an employee can quit for virtually any time or any reason. However, there are significant exceptions to this doctrine and it’s essential to know how they might affect you and other workers in Laredo.
The 1985 case, Sabine Pilot Services, Inc. v. Hauck, impacted how workers who are fired can respond to the actions of their employer. Michael Hauck, the terminated employee, asserted that his employer, Sabine Pilot, directed him to perform illegal acts. When Hauck refused, Sabine Pilot fired him.
The lawyers for Sabine Pilot Services argued that the "employment at will" doctrine protected their client's actions, but the court sided with Hauck. Have you been illegally terminated in Laredo? The decision of the Texas Supreme Court paved the way for you to file a Sabine Pilot claim and have an opportunity to make sure your employer is held accountable for their actions.
