Texas Requires Posting of Notice of Workplace Violence Hotline or Suspicious Activity

Effective September 1, 2023, Texas requires all employers to post a notice to employees providing contact information for reporting instances of workplace violence or suspicious activity to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Next Steps

The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) has until March 1, 2024, to issue the prescribed notice. Once that becomes available, covered employers must post the notice as required, which may include physical locations in the workplace for in-person employees, as well as electronically for remote employees.

Employers may wish to periodically check the TWC website for its release. HR Works will also continue to monitor this topic and provide an update once the notice is available.
