  • Restaurant w/o A/C in summer. Texas

    I'm working at a restaurant in South Texas. The air conditioning has been broken since April 2009 and the boss has no plans to fix the problem. (it is now June 2009)

    South Texas summer temperatures are already in the 90's and quickly approaching 100 degrees.

    The kitchen heat is unbearable.
    Are there any laws that could force the owner to repair the A/C? He is being very stubborn about the price of repairs.

    No, sorry, there aren't. OSHA has guidelines about the temperature in the workplace but that's all it is - a guideline. Plenty of people, by the nature of their jobs, have to work in extreme temperatures.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
