Wrongful Discharge in Violation of Texas Public Policy/Refusing to Perform an Illegal Act
(also known as Sabine Pilot claims)
The Scharfman Law Firm, PLLC represents clients in Sabine Pilot claims all over Texas, and is an aggressive advocate for our clients and their rights. We are committed to helping employees fight for their rights when they have been unlawfully terminated.
Employees are protected from discharge by an employer for the sole reason that they refused to perform an illegal act that carries criminal penalties. For example, an employer would violate the law if the employer instructs an employee to engage in an act for which the employee can go to jail if he/she committed such act and the employer discharges the employee for refusing to commit such act.
Certain statutes of limitations apply to these claims.
