The Texas Supreme Court will not hear arguments on mandatory paid sick leave. Justices rejected an appeal by the City of Austin today upholding a lower court's ruling. Austin passed a sick leave ordinance in 2018 but a group of Austin businesses and the Texas Public Policy Foundation sued to keep it from going into effect. It would have required private employees to give workers 64 hours of paid sick leave per year. Similar ordinances in Dallas and San Antonio have also been stopped by the courts.
