AN ACT
relating to certain disqualifications for unemployment compensation benefits for assigned employees of staff leasing services companies. BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS: SECTION 1. Section 207.045(i), Labor Code, is amended to read as follows: (i) An assigned employee of a staff leasing services company is considered to have left the assigned employee's last work without good cause if the staff leasing services company demonstrates that: (1) at the time the employee's assignment to a client company concluded, the staff leasing services company, or the client company acting on the staff leasing services company's behalf, gave written notice and written instructions to the assigned employee to contact the staff leasing services company for a new assignment [on termination of assignment at a client company]; and (2) the assigned employee did not contact the staff leasing services company regarding reassignment or continued employment; provided that the assigned employee may show that good cause existed for the assigned employee's failure to contact the staff leasing services company. SECTION 2. The changes in law made by this Act apply only to a claim for unemployment compensation benefits that is filed with the Texas Workforce Commission on or after the effective date of this Act. A claim filed before that date is governed by the law in effect on the date the claim was filed, and the former law is continued in effect for that purpose. SECTION 3. This Act takes effect September 1, 2005. ______________________________ ______________________________ President of the Senate Speaker of the House I certify that H.B.
