What to Do if You Are Terminated For Refusing to do an Illegal Act

Contact an attorney immediately, and please remember these Sabine Pilot claims are subject to a two-year statute of limitations.

“Sabine Pilot” is the name of a case decided by the Texas Supreme Court in 1985, Sabine Pilot Serv. v. Hauck (Tex. 1985). The Court recognized a narrow exception to the general “at will” doctrine of employment in Texas, and found that an at-will employee may sue his/her employer if he/she is fired for refusing to commit an illegal act.

Keep a file regarding everything that is said or done to you surrounding your termination and keep all of your records related to your employment. These notes and records may prove invaluable in a later lawsuit.
