  • Graphic artist wants to know her rights about portfolio at job.

    Hi. I was terminated from a job a little over a year ago and it was under very difficult circumstances. Now I would like to get copies of the files of art that I created for this job so that I can use it for my portfolio. What are my rights for this? Do I have any right to be able to get my work from them so that I can use it for getting another job? It is on the computer so I would just be copying the files, not actually taking physical objects. I know for a fact they are still using my images and animations to publicize what I was working on. I just wanted to get some advice before I contact them.
    Oh it is in Texas.

    You can certainly ask for copies of your work and see what happens, but the employer has no legal obligation to provide you with them. Your work product belongs to the employer, not to you.
    I am not able to respond to private messages. Thanks!
