Austin Texas Employment Attorneys
The employment litigation attorneys at the Law Offices of Steven D. Urban have represented both employers and employees in cases involving employment contracts, non-competition agreements, wrongful termination disputes, compensation disputes, discrimination disputes and other matters arising under state and federal law.
Austin Texas Breach of Employment Contract Lawyers
Employment disputes frequently arise from a perceived breach of an employment contract, which can be oral or written, or both. In fact, the dispute is often about whether a contract of employment even exists. Such disputes usually arise from an employer’s termination of one’s employment and whether such termination was justified under the law. Texas is what is known as an “Employment at Will” state, which means an employee can be terminated for no reason at all, among other things, but if an employer and employee agree otherwise, the agreement is usually enforced.
Austin Texas Breach of Non-Compete Covenant Attorneys and Non-Competition Agreement Attorneys
The interpretation and enforcement of Non-Competition Agreements/Non-Compete Covenant is another frequent source of employment litigation. Parties typically dispute not only whether such an agreement or covenant is enforceable, but also whether it is reasonable. Texas Courts usually will not enforce covenants that unreasonably overreach in their geographical scope or extend for unreasonable lengths of time.
Austin Texas Employment Discrimination Attorneys
Employment discrimination is another frequent source of employment litigation. Employees are protected from unlawful discrimination by both state and federal laws. Our attorneys have represented both employees who have been unlawfully discriminated against and employers who have been accused of such conduct.
