Probably. Employment for most people is "at will," meaning that the employer does not need a reason to fire you. They only have to avoid firing people for illegal reasons, and I don't think this situation fits any of those.
To be sure, have a qualified attorney in your area review all the facts. I don't practice in Texas and there are some variations in the law between states. One place you can find lawyers is our website, http://attorneypages.com
