Employment law considerations when the clocks turn back

In Texas and most other American states, the clock was turned back one hour at 2 a.m. on Nov. 4. However, employers may have questions about how to treat this hour in terms of paying their employees. For instance, employers may wonder if they have to pay workers twice for the hour between 1 a.m and 2 a.m. The answer depends on whether it represents an extra hour worked during a shift.

Rights of employees under FMLA

Employees in Texas should be aware of their rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act. The underpinning of FMLA is that it is supposed to help preserve family stability, which in turns makes for a more stable and productive employment situation.

There are a number of completely legal reasons why you might be let go from your job. If you are often absent or if the company is downsizing for budget reasons, these are common causes for changes in an employment roster. Sometimes, however, an employee is let go for unfair and unethical reasons. In such cases, seeking legal recourse may be the only way to fight against the injustice that has been committed.
