Created by FindLaw's team of legal writers and editors | Last reviewed June 20, 2016
The federal government sets minimum standard for employment protection, such as the federal minimum wage and laws prohibiting discrimination. But states have their own employment laws, either strengthening federal laws or adding new protections altogether.

This section covers Texas employment laws and regulations, including state civil rights laws; payday requirements; legal holidays; statutes protecting whistleblowers; and labor laws affecting unions.
