Wrongful Termination Statute of Limitations in Texas
The Statute of Limitations for Wrongful Termination in Texas
There are statutory exceptions to at-will employment termination. This means that if an employee wants to file a lawsuit, they will need to do so for the type of statutory violation that has occurred.
For example, if an employee is alleging discrimination (resulting in wrongful termination), you must submit a complaint to the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) within 180 days from the date of discrimination.
If an employee is filing a lawsuit, which is something they will do after filing a discrimination claim with the TWC, they must ensure that your suit is filed within two (2) years.
