Hours & Pay Regulations
No Texas or federal law requires private-sector employers to provide paid or unpaid annual leave of any kind, although some amount of unpaid leave may be necessary as a reasonable accommodation in the event of a disability, pregnancy, or other condition protected under specific statutes.
The state minimum wage rate matches the federal minimum wage, currently $7.25 per hour as of January 1, 2020. The State law excludes from coverage any employment that is subject to the federal Fair Labor Standards Act.
The above information on minimum wages might not be up to date & subject to change. Kindly access the DOL website for the current rates.
With the exception of leaves of absence for military duty, no leave of absence, by itself or in combination with other periods of leave, may last longer than six months. Any employee who for any reason or combination of reasons misses a total of six months of work in a twelve-month period, or a total of nine months of work in an eighteen-month period, will be separated from employment due to unavailability for work, subject to any reasonable accommodation duties the company may have under the ADA or similar law. Any employee so separated will be eligible for rehire and will be able to apply for any vacancies that may exist at any given time, depending upon qualifications and availability of job openings.
