  • General Manager

    My Corporate Headquarters has issued an email directing that effective Dec 31, 05, relatives of managers may no longer be employed, and any present employees who are relatives must be terminated. The reason given is to prevent any perception of favoritism in work schedules, promotions, etc.)

    My son works part time (less than 15 hours a week), works only during hours when he does not interact with my 2 other employees, and is shown no favoritism by me. He has been an employee for almost 5 years. He has no desire to be promoted beyond what he already does for me.(He hasn't even received the same pay raises as my other employees.)

    Question: Do DOL or Texas Labor laws protect employees such as this?

    No, no state does.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      Such a policy is perfectly legal under Federal law and in the laws of all 50 states.
      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.
