Texas is an employment-at-will state. That generally means an employer can terminate an employee for any reason at any time. For example, employers can fire employees who have personality disputes with a manager or who refuse to relocate or accept a different position. However, sometimes a seemingly lawful reason for termination may be a cover-up for an illegal or wrongful termination.
