Texas Human Resources Code, Section 121.003


This code addresses discrimination that is prohibited by law in the state of Texas, especially pertaining to people with disabilities. Among other measures, it specifically states that, “It is the policy of the state that persons with disabilities be employed by the state, by political subdivisions of the state, in the public schools, and in all other employment supported in whole or in part by public funds on the same terms and conditions as persons without disabilities, unless it is shown that there is no reasonable accommodation that would enable a person with a disability to perform the essential elements of a job.”
