Relating to the period during which an employee may file a claim for
unpaid wages with the Texas Workforce Commission.
No fiscal impact to the state is anticipated.
HB 399 would lengthen the deadline for an employee to file a wage claim with the Texas Workforce Commission from 180 days to one year.
Texas Action recommends opposing HB 399 because 180 days is already quite a long time to file for a wage claim. Lengthening the deadline to a year will likely result in more frivolous claims, and potential fraud. This bill violates our principles of limited government and personal responsibility.
