Tex. Health & Safety Code Section 143.009
Order Prohibiting Certain Industrial Homework; Hearing


The board by order shall prohibit industrial homework in a certain industry and shall require employers in that industry to stop delivering in this state any materials for that industrial homework if the board determines, after investigation, that the industrial homework may not be continued in that industry without injuring the health and welfare of industrial homeworkers in that industry or of the public.


Before adopting an order under Subsection (a), the board must hold a public hearing at which an opportunity to be heard must be afforded to any person having an interest in the subject matter of the hearing, including:


an employer or a representative of employers; or


an industrial homeworker or a representative of industrial homeworkers.


The board must give public notice of the hearing:


not later than the 30th day before the date on which the hearing is held; and


in a manner determined by the board.


The board shall hold the hearing in the place the board determines to be most convenient to the employers and industrial homeworkers affected by the order.


The board shall determine the effective date of the order, which may not be less than 90 days after the date of its adoption.


After an order becomes effective, a person holding an employer’s permit may not deliver materials for the industrial homework prohibited by the order.
