How does “at will” employment affect wrongful termination cases?

Texas is an “at will” employment state, which means an employer may fire you for any reason.  “At will” employment can make it very difficult to pursue a wrongful termination case. Employers can easily cover their true reasons for firing an individual with false reasons that would keep them out of trouble. It is important that you speak with someone who is knowledgeable in wrongful termination law if you suspect you were wrongfully terminated.
