FMLA in Texas is governed directly and exclusively by the 1993 federal Family & Medical Leave Act. Texas is one of the few states that has not produced any supplemental laws regarding family or medical leave. In spite of this fact, there seems to be a significant level of confusion among covered employers. Recent large-dollar judgments against employers found to be non-compliant and reports of increased Department of Labor audits and investigations are creating a new degree of interest and awareness regarding FMLA in Texas.
As in other states, compliance with federal FMLA in Texas is a challenge, but there is a clear-cut solution.
