Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

We are proud to announce the launch of our new website dedicated entirely to Dallas employment law.  The new website was built in conjunction with the formation of Erick & Thomas, a Dallas employment law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of employees.  Dallas employment attorney Casey Erick and Dallas employment lawyer Tom M. Thomas II also added the following about Texas employment discrimination cases:

Texas Employment Discrimination:  What Is It?

If you believe that you have been the victim of employment discrimination, it is important to understand what employment discrimination entails and what your rights are. Those who have been subjected to employment discrimination are entitled to redress the issue; a qualified Dallas employment lawyer will be able to tell you what you should do about your case.

What characterizes employment discrimination is an employer’s use of unfair or illegal employment practices that are based on the employee or potential employee’s racial background, national origin, physical disability, age, sex, or religion. Various state and federal laws classify such behavior as discriminatory and prohibit it on those grounds.

Employers might engage in many different forms of discriminatory practices. These can include bias, singling out, or excluding specific employees based on the factors mentioned above in any aspect of applying for, engaging in, or ending employment. Allowing an individual’s protected status to affect decision-making in hiring, firing, payment and salary, employee classification, transfers, promotions, lay-offs, job advertising, company facility access, fringe benefits, retirement plans, disability leave, or any other terms and condition of employment is to engage in employment discrimination.

There are other ways of engaging in employment discrimination in addition to the criteria listed above. Using stereotypes and assumptions about race, gender, religion, ethnicity, or disability to determine employment decisions is one. Another is harassing an individual at the workplace due to genetic information, disability, color, race, national origin, religion, sex, or age. A third is retaliating against an employee who has challenged discrimination at work, filed a discrimination charge against the employer, or participated in an investigation of workplace discrimination. Last, but not least, denying or withholding employment opportunities based on an individual’s association with a person of a certain race, nationality, religion, or disability status is discrimination.

Although sexual orientation is not a protected class in Texas, there is a growing body of law in other states that prohibits employment discrimination based on sexual orientation.

If you have been the victim of employment discrimination, you can fight for redress of the wrongful actions of your employer.

Texas Credit Card Lawsuit Defense

Texas Credit Card Lawsuit Defense

We have an entire practice area, and likewise an entire website, dedicated solely to Texas credit card lawsuit defense.  Being sued for a credit card debt was once unheard of.  Unfortunately, it is now a daily occurrence in Texas.  Hundreds of these lawsuits are filed each week across the state.  Many good people who have become the victim of a bad economy have fallen behind on their payments, and have then been forced to make a choice – do I pay my mortgage and car payments and keep food on the table, or do I sacrifice those necessities in order to pay late fees, penalties, and credit card default interest rates that are often times over 30%.  While the choice that must be made is usually an obvious one, the consequence may be getting hailed into a Texas court to face a civil lawsuit for the unpaid debt.

We defend Texas credit card lawsuits across the state and we have had enormous success in getting these cases dismissed and in negotiating settlements prior to trial.  You can click here to go directly to our Texas credit card lawsuit defense website.  We charge very affordable flat fees to defend these cases and we take payment plans that are designed to allow our clients to go about their daily lives with minimal financial disruption.  Our goal in these cases is to keep our client out of court and to obtain a result that our client will be happy with.

Please feel free to contact us for a free consultation.
