Texas is a big place, and a great place to do business. Texas’ economy ranks 10th in the world, right behind Brazil and right in front of Canada. Roughly 13.5 million employees work in Texas. To manage this workforce effectively, Texas has a system of statutes, regulations and judicial opinions that control many aspects of the employer-employee relationship. This blog’s purpose is to highlight every so often the interaction between the business world and the legal world, and hopefully provide some clarity to it all. Sometimes serious, and sometimes not so serious, we hope that you enjoy what you find here.
