  • Labor law for private employers in Texas consists primarily of the state's Right to Work law, which does not list specific penalties for employer prohibited practices other than general damages. See Right to Work.
  • There is little in the statutes relative to prohibited practices by public employers, and no specific penalties are listed. See Public Employers.
