Austin Employment Law Attorneys:
The law firm of Howard & Kobelan has focused its practice in the area of employment law for over 25 years. We represent employees in the Central Texas area in connection with a wide range of legal issues such as claims of discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination, workers compensation retaliation, FMLA retaliation, whistleblower retaliation, unemployment benefits claims, and wage and hour claims. Derek Howard and Logan Howard have successfully represented hundreds of clients in all areas of employment law, and they provide both employees and employers with the sound legal advice and individualized solutions that their cases require.
Texas is an at-will employment state, which means that an employee may be terminated for almost any reason. However, under Texas and federal law, there are some reasons that employer cannot terminate or otherwise harm an employee, including: discrimination based on age (over the age of 40), sex, ethnicity, race, national origin, disability, religion or retaliation for complaining about discrimination, for filing a worker’s compensation claim, for taking FMLA leave, or for refusing to engage in illegal activity. If you are an employee working in Texas who believes that you have been subjected to discrimination in the workplace, retaliated against, or otherwise wrongfully terminated, please do not hesitate to contact us. We understand that every case is different, and we strive to provide our clients with honest and straightforward legal advice for each unique situation. We offer a free initial consultation.
In addition to our representation of employees, our firm also represents small businesses in connection with employee complaints of discrimination, wage and hour requirements under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), as well as drafting and review of employment contracts, non-compete agreements, employee handbooks, and severance agreements. We have experience representing employers before the City of Austin Equal Employment/Fair Housing Office, Texas Workforce Commission (TWC), Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the United States Department of Labor (DOL), and state and federal courts in Texas.
Our employment law attorneys represent victims of sexual harassment and sexual abuse as well as individuals who have been falsely accused of sexual harassment and sexual abuse. We can also provide representation to those whose civil rights have been violated by governmental entities such as police departments, school districts, cities, counties, the State of Texas, and federal agencies.
