Dallas, Texas Employment Attorney Raul Loya Is Vested In Your Freedom

Hostile Work Environment

Discrimination Harassment and Retaliation

Have you ever said:  “I hate my job.”  Or, “I love my job but hate the people I work with.”  You may have said this when you have suffered harassment, hostile work environment, or retaliation.

When employees experience discrimination in the workplace due to race, gender, age, or disability, a hostile work environment can be obvious. For those reporting harassment or whistleblowers, a hostile workplace can take more subtle forms, such as a workload increase, getting passed over for promotion or raises, and demotion or transfer that limits opportunity.

If you believe you may be the victim of a hostile work environment, you have rights. The experienced employment lawyers in Dallas at Loya Law protect employees from unfair treatment on the job. You have options. Talk to us before you take action.

We listen. We care. We fight for you.

Before you suffer further, or are forced to quit, you should know that protection from workplace abuse exists under federal employment laws protecting employees from harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination :

  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) – Prohibits employers from discriminating against otherwise qualified employees based on a disability. Employers may be required to provide existing, reasonable accommodations allowing disabled workers to complete job functions.
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) – Prohibits employers from discriminating against employees age 40 or older, including forcing older employees into retirement or using age to demote, cut benefits or deny promotions and raises.
  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act – Protects all employees from discrimination based on race, color, national origin, gender, or religion.
  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) – Sets employment standards for minimum wage, overtime pay, record-keeping requirements, and child labor laws.
  • Equal Pay Act (EPA) – Prohibits compensation discrimination based on gender, for employees who complete equal work requiring the same skill, effort, responsibility, and similar working conditions within the same company.
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) – Requires employers to provide 12 weeks of unpaid time off within a 12 month period, for certain medical and family reasons including adoption, birth of a child, caring for a foster child or seriously ill loved ones.
  • Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) – Sets minimum standards for employers who provide health, retirement, disability, life insurance and other benefits to their employees, involving administration, reporting requirements, fiduciary responsibilities and other compliance requirements. Employees also have important COBRA (Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act) and HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) rights under ERISA.
  • Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) – Places restrictions on an employer’s ability to request copies of an employee’s or job applicant’s credit report from a credit reporting agency, including the requirement of requesting and receiving employee permission prior to making requests.

You also may be entitled to additional protection in a hostile work environment or other employment law claims under state and local laws:

  • Texas Labor Code – The State of Texas has enacted its own employment laws designed to protect Texas workers against unfair treatment by employers throughout the state, including wage claims under the Texas Payday Act.
  • Texas Commission on Human Rights Act (TCHRA) – Codified under the Texas Labor Code, it prohibits discrimination due to race, gender, disability, religion, national origin, or age.
  • Anyone denied their rights under any one of these important state and federal employment laws may pursue various forms of relief, including civil lawsuits. Learn more about your employee rights and representation by a skilled attorney today.

Every employee has rights. You can, and should, take actions to protect those rights and look out for your future. Taking action as a whistleblower is not justification for losing your job. Employers do not have the right to do whatever they want when making personnel decisions. If the decisions leading to your wrongful termination were not handled properly, it could be a violation of your contract.


The only thing that should be a factor in your hiring or firing is your performance at work. The firing of an employee based on any type of discriminatory practice is wrongful termination. If you have lost your job due to discrimination, you can take action and get the compensation you deserve. We handle cases involving discrimination based on:

  • Age
  • Race or gender
  • Religion
  • Disability
  • Military status

Sometimes it is hard to know whether or not you have a case against your former employer. Our employment law attorneys are here to help. We can look at the situation regarding your wrongful termination and help you understand your legal options.


Whether you reported sexual harassment or other form of hostile work environments or used family leave you are entitled to under FMLA or reporting company fraud, retaliation by employers against workers is illegal. We can help you fight back against unfair termination or the pressure to quit.

From our offices in Dallas, we protect the rights of employees throughout Texas. If you don’t know where to turn after your wrongful termination, we are here to help. Contact us today for a free initial consultation.

Dallas Race and Gender Discrimination

Everyone deserves the chance to advance their career based on the merits of their work, but not everyone gets that chance.

Whether you have been wrongfully fired or you have been the victim of discrimination, we can help you weigh your options and take action.

We listen. We care. We fight for you.

Federal laws prohibit discrimination based on race, gender, ethnic origin, and religion. Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act protects employees who do not receive the same consideration due to these and other factors. Discriminatory policies within a company or discrimination by one person can manifest themselves in many different ways, including:

  • Wrongful termination
  • Refusal to hire
  • Withholding opportunity for advancement

They can also contribute to causing an environment where sexual harassment can occur.

Race Discrimination

One person’s prejudice can have a major impact on company-wide policy, but your race should never be a factor in your hiring or firing. Minority candidates are protected by law, but they don’t always receive the protection they deserve. We enforce the rights of clients of all backgrounds at Loya Law, including African-American, Hispanic, and Asian clients who have been the victims of discrimination.

Gender Discrimination

Gender discrimination should not be allowed to harm your career. Just as with sexual harassment or wrongful termination, sex discrimination is wrong. If you believe that you may have been the victim of gender discrimination, you can take action today.
