TOP THINGS TO KNOW THIS WEEK FOR TEXAS BUSINESSES

Paid Sick Leave

 

Gov. Greg Abbott is supporting bills filed last week that would prohibit cities from dictating pay and benefits guidelines that mandate paid sick leave for Texas businesses. 

 

The bills would prohibit “any terms of employment that exceed or conflict with federal or state law relating to any form of employment leave, hiring practices, employment benefits, scheduling practices, or other terms of employment,” according to Creighton’s bill. 

 

The TPPF attorney representing the Texas Association of Business, Rob Hennecke, commended the legislative efforts to block mandatory paid sick.
