Why Your Workforce Should Not Be Debating Trump's Tweets!

In a tweet on July 27, 2019, President Trump described Representative Elijah Cumming’s Congressional District in Baltimore as “a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.” On July 14, 2019, President Trump also tweeted: “So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly… and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run.

Beware Of The Follow-Up OSHA Inspection

The OSHA penalty structure is specifically designed to punish employers more severely for uncorrected hazards discovered by the agency during a previous inspection.

What Dallas Employers Need To Know About New Paid Sick Time Ordinance

Earlier this year, Dallas became the third Texas municipality (after Austin and San Antonio) to enact a paid sick time ordinance applicable to private employers. There is no corresponding Texas state law which mandates paid sick time in the private sector. Unlike the Austin ordinance, which was ruled unconstitutional by a Texas Appellate Court, no Texas court has yet ruled on the constitutionality of the Dallas ordinance. The Texas legislature, which adjourned in May, otherwise enacted no legislation affecting municipal paid sick time ordinances. READ MORE
