Can you be fired without a reason in the state of Texas?
I know that it varies from state to state so I would appreciate it if the information given would pertain to only Texas. Is it possible for your employer to fire you for no apperant reason (and I mean NO reason, but if given a reason- say something as stupid as not clocking him out because he forgot to do so himself) Thank you.

Texas, like Arizona (where I live and work), is a Right-To-Work State.

This explains it quite well: http://www.nrtw.org/c/txrtwlaw.htm

Yes they can. Texas is an at will state, this means you can be fired anytime for any reason or no reason at all.

At my job, you can be fired within 90 days with no explanation from the business, and I am sure it goes across the board for businesses since it's a legal thing. Usually people are not fired in that manner, but they reserve the right to do so.

Texas is a "right to work" state, yes you can be fired for absolutely no reason.

Yes, Texas is an at-will state, an employer can fire an employee with or without cause. The only exception would be if you are fired for an illegal reason. (Because of your gender, religion, political affiliation, age, etc)

By the way, not clocking in or out is not a stupid reason to get fired for. It's called time fraud for payroll. Same thing as someone clocking another employee in or out. If this was a one time occurance, and this is a long term employee then I would question it. But if it's someone who seems to "forget" to clock out often, or seems to disappear before the end of their shift and also "forgot" to clock out that day.
