Many Texas construction workers may be unaware that they are being misclassified as subcontractors, which could result in their families being denied benefits if they are injured or killed on the job, as the example in this article demonstrates. This misclassification unfairly places the burden of an accident on the employee and their family. The loophole must be closed and the employer-employee relationship clarified for the protection of these workers.

A coalition of activists, business owners and lawmakers met at the State Capitol Tuesday in hopes of closing a loophole in state law that endangers construction workers across Texas.

Angel Hurtado died when he fell from a roof eight years ago. His boss did not provide a legally-required harness. However the employer was never penalized, and Hurtado’s family never received workman’s compensation benefits.
