Texas Posts Adjusted Annual Payroll Requirement for Seasonal Workers

The adjusted annual payroll requirement of an employer for the coverage of seasonal workers under the provisions of the Texas Labor Code, Section 406.162 is $55,922, the Texas Department of Insurance announced.

This gross payroll amount will be used in year 2018 to apply against an agricultural employer’s year 2017 gross payroll, and to determine whether a farm or ranch worker is covered by workers’ compensation.

The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts calculated that in Texas the inflation rate was 2.08 percent during the period of Sept. 1, 2016 through Aug. 31, 2017.
