  • Texas Lunch Breaks

    I just moved to Houston from Indiana and I have a quick question. From my understanding, Indiana law requires employers must pay you for a 15 minute lunch break for every 4 hours that you work. It seem that the companies that I have worked for in Texas do not do that. Does Texas have any law requiring employers to pay for any type of lunch breaks? And if not, has anyone ever tried to get a similar law passed? Please assist.

      Texas tends to be less than worker friendly. Therefore, they probably don't have very good laws in the way of breaks for workers. However, you may want to check out this website to find out for sure: http://www.twc.state.tx.us/.

      Good luck.

        I can tell you that Texas definitely does not have a mandatory lunch period or a mandatory rest period.
