What Is The History Of The "texas Payday Law"?

Effective January 1, 1990, the Texas Employment Commission (now part of the Texas Workforce Commission) was given a mandate to receive and adjudicate wage claims. The current provisions of the Texas Payday Law are found in Chapter 61 of the Texas Labor Code; those provisions differ greatly from an earlier statute which contained virtually no enforcement procedures. Both employees and employers should be aware of the law so they will know the rights and responsibilities which are conferred on them by the law.
