  • Texas does not require paid sick leave for employees of private sector employers. See Paid Sick Leave.
  • Localities including Austin and San Antonio passed paid sick leave laws; however, they have been blocked from taking effect while they are being contested in the courts. See Local Requirements.
  • Ensure that practices and policies comply with applicable paid sick leave requirements. See Key Compliance Steps.
