HR and Employment Law Resources for Texas

Texas state image

Texas is an employer-friendly state. For example, the state antidiscrimination law mirrors federal law. However, some state laws do benefit employees. Take, for example, the parking lot storage law that requires an employer to allow an employee to have a gun in a personal, locked vehicle so long as certain requirements are met.

This page is a round-up of the state and municipal laws in Texas.
