Texas is an employment at will state but this does not exempt our companies and employees from complying with may local and federal laws within the workplace. Terminations or mishandling employment matters can become a long and expensive litigation. Knowing best practices when facing terminations, progressive discipline, internal investigations, sexual harassment, and discrimination practices amongst many other federal and state laws, will keep management on top of its game. Developing and implementing employee relations’ policies, updated employee handbooks, will help not only compliance with legal regulations but to keep risks minimal even when facing litigation.
