Q. Like file a civil suit against my Ex-employer for freedom of speech violation, which I was fired. statue of limitation?
A: Just to clarify one point that I dont think any one else touched on. Freedom of Speech is a right you have that the government cannot impede on. However, there is no private right to freedom of speech. For instance, if you enter my house or my workplace, and say something offensive or something that I do not like, I can certainly get rid of you.

Furthermore, in Texas, we are an at-will state. What that means is that the employer can fire the employee, and generally, the employee can leave work, at any time they want and with no explanation. While it is nice to be given 2 weeks notice, the law does not require that.

The only thing the law requires is that you cannot be fired because of discriminatory reasons. There is a short reason of things that qualify, which include: 1) Gender, 2) Age, 3) Sexual Preference, 4) Race, 5) Ethnicity, 6) Disability, and a few others. You CANNOT be fired or be refused employed solely because of these reasons. If that happens, that is discrimination and you can bring a suit for it.

You ALSO cannot be fired because of retaliation. So if you report your employer to a regulatory body because of a violation or bad conduct, they cannot fire you in response for that. Mainly because the government wants to protect whistle blowers and encourage people to come forward and report these kinds of things.

So, the main point I am making is that, generally speaking, your employer can fire you, on the spot, for any reason, or no reason at all, so long as those reason do not include the reasons listed above.

It would appear that your firing was in response to you filing a workers compensation claim after catching COVID-19 while on the job. This, i believe, is a violation of your right. And the sole reason for your firing cannot be because you filed a workers compensation claim, because this would be considered retaliation. I would advise that you retain a personal injury attorney to further flush out your potential claims against your employer and to better advise you on the steps moving forward. The laws on this matter can be very nuanced and unforgiving, so in order to protect your claims, please seek professional assistance.

Q. Was hurt at work. Insurance company treated herniated disc in my back. Now they are saying it was not part of the injur
A: Ah, this is just business as usual. I have never come across a workers compensation doctor that was able to found an injury. And the ones that do dont tend to get re-hired by company's.

I would seek a second opinion from a different doctor, and inform your employer of the findings of that second doctor. Let them know that whatever they are saying is likely wrong and that they need to do the right thing.

And the most important part, make sure you retain a personal injury attorney to help through out this entire process. In my experience, clients tend to try and wait until the last moment, when all other options have failed, before they seek the counsel of a personal injury attorney. And sadly, by this time, it is already too late for anything to be done. Costly mistakes have already been made and there is not much more an attorney can do to salvage the situation. So always, if you are navigating an injury claim, please make sure you involve an injury attorney. ... Read More
Q. Can illegal search and arrest give the arrested possible legal or tort rights against cop or county?
A: The question here is whether the police officer is protected by qualified immunity. In this situation, i think a good case can be made that the arrest was a violation of your rights and that the police officers behavior should not be protected by the law, because this was a clear and obvious deviation from his regular work duties.

Furthermore, I would argue that the city was negligent in training and supervising the officers, and so, you could hold them liable as well. How was the city negligent in supervising? Well, if it took a year and a half of scrutiny for them to turn over this information, it is clear that they were trying to cover things up. This kind of behavior bleeds into the work culture, and only emboldens police officers to behave in this kind of way.

So to answer your question, yes, you should be able to go after both the cop and the county for the breach of your rights and the false imprisonment.
