House Bill 915 of the 88th Regular Session of the Texas Legislature added a new work-site notice requirement for all Texas employers.
The required notice provides information for reporting workplace violence or suspicious activity to the Department of Public Safety (DPS) and includes information about the right to make an anonymous report to DPS. Effective immediately, the notice must be posted in a conspicuous place, in sufficient locations convenient to all employees, and in English and Spanish, as appropriate.
Prescribed text of the notice Reporting Workplace Violence is available on the Texas Workforce Commission website. Employers should download and post the notice next to their State required notices immediately.
HR Services is updating the TASB State Work-Site Poster to include the new notice, and it is expected to be available for purchase in February.
More information about work-site posting requirements is available in Work-Site Posting Requirements for Districts and Work-Site Posting Requirements for Colleges in the HR Services Resources Library (member login required).
