Employment Lawsuits Explode in Texas

Updated: Mar 23, 2019

A recent issue of the Southeast Texas Record shows that employment related lawsuits are being filed at a record pace in the area.   Just the latest issue discusses:

  • A suit brought by two former pharmacists at Memorial Hermann Hospital, claiming that they were wrongfully fired because of their race.

  • Alleged failure to pay overtime suits against Oceans Healthcare, a Sugar Land restaurant, an oilfield consulting company, an oilfield services company, and a construction company.

  • A suit against Whole Foods Market for alleged abuse of an employee due to his age, disability and religion.

Virtually all of these case make claims under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act, and claim actual damages, punitive damages, attorneys’ fees and various other remedies.

Suits such as these, if lost, can be devastating for a company. But the best defense is prevention. Call us if we can help you navigate your way through the overtime and employment classification requirements, or to discuss your labor litigation matter.



Phil Griffis obtained his first jury verdict in 1990, when he convinced a jury that a customer’s fall at his client’s store did not cause the customer’s aspiration pneumonia and stroke. In the years since he has continued to win in courtrooms across the State of Texas.
