Austin, Texas Sick Pay Leave Unconstitutional

Judiciary says it’s unconstitutional, so legislators¬† have developed a cure of their own………….

“[T]he Third District noted that because the Austin PSL Ordinance increases the pay of employees using paid sick leave, it establishes a TMWA-defined wage. As such, the Third District held the TMWA preempts the Austin PSL Ordinance as a matter of law, thereby making it unconstitutional…. [O]utside the judicial arena, Texas State Legislators have developed a potential paid sick leave cure of their own.”
