         SECTION 1.  Section 204.022, Labor Code, is amended by
  adding Subsection (a-1) to read as follows:
         (a-1)  Benefits computed on benefit wage credits of an
  employee may not be charged to the account of an employer if the
  employee continued to work the employee's customary hours for the
  employer when the employee's benefit year began. This subsection

  the former law is continued in effect for that purpose.
         SECTION 3.  This Act takes effect September 1, 2013.
