What Schools Can Do, Aside from the Obvious, to Protect Themselves from Retaliation Claims (Mar 2016)
Texas takes a shotgun approach to prohibiting retaliation in the workplace, with several different statutes giving rise to distinct causes of action based on the nature of the protected activity. There are also several federal laws prohibiting retaliation of various sorts. Review the various types of protected activity and prohibited retaliation and explore how these claims proceed through the various administrative systems, like the EEOC, that are often a first stop before a lawsuit is filed. Most importantly, learn best employment practices that every school should use and that will help establish a defense to these claims before you even know you need one.
