Yesterday, a U.S. District Judge enjoined enforcement of the Dallas Paid Sick Leave Ordinance. The law, effective August 1, 2019, was scheduled to start being enforced by the City of Dallas on April 1, 2020. Dallas’s law, similar to laws passed by the City of Austin and San Antonio, will now wait until the Texas Supreme Court rules on the appeal it is considering the legality of Austin’s ordinance. Meanwhile, the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act and Family and Medical Leave Expansion Acts will take effect tomorrow.
