Law in the Workplace is a blog dedicated to assisting Texas-based employers to navigate labor and employment law. Employers must comply with numerous federal and state laws. These legal statutes and court opinions are frequently difficult to follow and full of legalese and complex language. Texas presents its own set of unique laws, circumstances and generally accepted corporate cultural guidelines that differ from anywhere else in the country. It is difficult for in-house counsel, executives and other human resources professionals to stay abreast of the ever changing legal landscape. Indeed, most employment issues occur not because of intentional conduct, but because of the simple lack of knowledge or understanding of the applicable law. Law in the Workplace aims to be a go-to resource to help employers keep up-to-date with the law via concise posts written in plain language and designed for real world application.
