El Paso Employment Law Attorneys

Fighting for the Rights of Workers Throughout Texas

At Guerra & Farah, PLLC, our team of experienced lawyers understand that you depend on your ability to work and hold a job in order to earn the income you need to support yourself and your family. Unfortunately, employers sometimes treat their workers unfairly and put them in situations that threaten their livelihood and financial stability. That is why our legal team is committed to helping employees in El Paso obtain the justice they deserve.

When an employer fires you or discriminates against you for reasons that violate your legal rights, you can take action against them to seek compensation.

Employees in El Paso and the rest of Texas are protected by powerful labor laws. These laws safeguard their rights against abusive and discriminatory practices used by their employers. This includes:

  • Sexual harassment
  • Harassment based on a person’s religion, race, age, gender, and national origin
  • Other attributes protected under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) provides the following protections for workers:

  • Limits the number of hours that an employee is required to work in a week
  • Establishes a minimum wage that all employees are entitled to receive
  • Requires employers to pay time and a half for overtime work
  • Protects minor children from oppressive child labor practices
  • Provides whistleblower protections against employer retaliation for reporting fraud or other illegal activities in the workplace

Employees can also recover damages by helping the government sue for fraud.
