Update on Texas Cities Ordinances on Sick Leave

Foley & Lardner LLP

Foley & Lardner LLPWe previously reported on the San Antonio sick leave ordinance that was to become effective August 1, 2019.  City of San Antonio employers now have four extra months to comply.  On July 24, 2019, district judge Sol Casseb signed off on a deal between city official and business groups to delay implementation of the ordinance until December 1, 2019.  For what compliance means, and how to get ready, see our previous article.

San Antonio employers may not be alone in receiving a temporary reprieve from sick leave implementation.  The Dallas ordinance we previously reported on now seems poised for a fight similar to the Austin and San Antonio ordinances.  News reports have stated that the Texas Public Policy Foundation sent a letter to Dallas City Attorney On July 22, 2019 indicating that they will pursue litigation if the Dallas ordinance is not similarly delayed until December 1.  We will continue to update on any new developments regarding these ordinances.
