Seal of the State of Texas

Dear Texas Employer:

For generations, the State of Texas has cultivated an extraordinary economic climate allowing free enterprise to flourish through less government, low taxes and reasonable regulations that attract job creators and spur economic growth. Employers like you continue to lead the way in creating more opportunities for our hardworking job force and drawing top honors and recognition for the State of Texas' exceptional economy. In fact, Chief Executive Magazine in April 2023 named Texas as the Best State for Business for the 19th year in a row.

Despite our success, we simply cannot become complacent and rest on past accomplishments. Even in today's favorable business climate, challenges remain, and entrepreneurs and employers must operate their businesses with utmost integrity and respect for those they employ.

The State of Texas has a responsibility to provide employers with the tools required to operate a business legally, ethically and responsibly, and Texas Guidebook for Employers is the state's premier resource for decoding the often confusing language of state and federal employment laws. Employers across the state consistently find this publication to be helpful in day-to-day business operations and for acquiring immediate information and assistance that can be difficult to obtain or comprehend without a roadmap.

On behalf of all Texans, I want to express my sincerest gratitude for your dedication to make Texas an even better place to live, work and run a business. I hope you find Texas Guidebook for Employers to be a helpful and convenient resource, and I wish you all the success in your business endeavors.
