A transgender woman -- one of our clients -- sues Phillips 66 for sex discrimination

We are currently representing a transgender woman in a federal lawsuit recently filed in Houston. Our client is suing Phillips 66 Company for sex discrimination under the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Discriminatory conduct may give cause for legal action in Texas

Though policies may be imposed that work to prevent unfair treatment in a place of employment, many workers may still feel as if they are subjected to unjust actions. Unfortunately, discriminatory conduct can still infiltrate workplaces even if precautions and policies are in place. If superiors do not work to enforce those policies, certain workers could suffer unnecessarily. 

Discriminatory conduct may cause loss of Texas job opportunities

The idea of enduring discrimination may not often cross the minds of some individuals, while for others, it is a daily worry. Unfortunately, many people in various industries are subjected to unfair treatment, and often, discriminatory conduct can result in their losing out on job opportunities altogether. When parties feel victimized by such conduct, they may wish to pursue legal action.

What you should do if you're the victim of gender discrimination

Let's say you show up to work one day and you see a notice for a new supervisory position that is available. You're a woman, and you know that all the other competitors for the job will be men. However, you also know that you're more experienced, better educated and better capable of carrying out the responsibilities.

How to Spot Pregnancy Discrimination in the Workplace

Workplace discrimination takes many forms, and pregnancy discrimination is one of them. However, many women assume that they simply have to endure this type of discrimination, while other women may even be forced to quit their jobs. The reality, though, is that federal law protects women from pregnancy discrimination in the workplace.

Race discrimination lawsuit filed against Fox News Channel

Two workers at a news channel in another state recently claimed that they had endured many years of discrimination due to their race. Thus, these two workers, black women, have filed a lawsuit against their employer, Fox News Channel, alleging race discrimination. The top executive in finance who allegedly harassed them has since been terminated. Racial discrimination is illegal, so those who experience it in the workplace in Texas and elsewhere have the right to explore all of their legal options for righting any wrong that has been committed.

Race discrimination suit filed against car wash business

A car wash business in another state was recently accused of discriminating against certain employees on the basis of race. A race discrimination lawsuit has thus been filed against the company. According to the suit, the company did not promote black workers to management roles due to their race, which is illegal in the state of Texas and other states.

Married couple allege race discrimination, harassment

A former faculty member and a current faculty member at a noted university in another state have claimed that they were harassed and discriminated against due to their race. The pair, a married couple who are Asian American, have thus decided to sue the university together. When workers in the state of Texas face race discrimination or harassment on the job, it is within their rights to seek to hold their employers accountable for improper conduct.

Workplace discrimination suit filed against Fiat Chrysler

An automobile company is currently facing accusations of age discrimination. Specifically, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles reportedly treated its older workers unjustly when evaluating their job performance. The company ended up giving older employers fewer promotions and less pay than its younger workers received -- a type of workplace discrimination that is illegal in Texas and all other states, according to federal law.

Religious discrimination suit against state settled

A minister who also worked for the government in another state was reportedly fired due to his religious views. He therefore sued the state, alleging religious discrimination, which is illegal in the state of Texas and other states. The suit was recently settled for more than $200,000.
