Summary

  • Except in a few instances, Texas does not regulate aspects of working time, such as break periods or travel time, so Texas employers should consult federal law when determining what constitutes hours worked. See To 'Employ'.
  • Employers do not need to pay on-call time to employees who live on the premises of their employer's business. See On-Call Time.
