If you have been fired for reporting the violation of a law by your employer, then you may have a "whistleblower" claim. But, keep in mind that "whistleblower" statutes vary from state to state. In Texas, you can only bring a "whistleblower" claim if you were working for a city, county or state agency. If you were working for a private entity, and you were fired for reporting some type of misconduct, Texas law does not protect you.
However, if you are working for a private entity, and you are fired for refusing to personally violate the law, then Texas law may protect you.
If you were working for a federal agency, certain federal "whistleblower" statutes may also protect you.
