Agency History

The Texas Bureau of Labor Statistics was created in 1909 (House Bill 109, 31st Texas Legislature, Regular Session) to collect and report statistical information to the governor regarding labor and industry within the state of Texas. Reported information included statistics concerning the commercial, social, educational and sanitary conditions of…employees and their families. A commissioner appointed to a two-year term by the governor headed the bureau. Gradually the Legislature added powers of administration and enforcement of industrial laws affecting the welfare of employees, employers, and the general public.

At the time the records within this collection were created, the Bureau's Labor Division administered and enforced labor laws related to wages, hours, timeliness of payment, health, safety, morals, etc. The Labor Division also administered and enforced the Child Labor Law. Originally passed in 1925 (House Bill 161, 39th Legislature, Regular Session) and amended in 1929 (House Bill 319, 41st Legislature, Regular Session), the law regulated the age at which children were legally able to work, permitted hours, and types of employment. The bureau investigated each child work permit and worked with local law enforcement to prosecute violations.

The Employment Agency Division enforced the Employment and Labor Agency Law passed in 1929 (Senate Bill 127, 41st Legislature, 2nd Called Session) and amended in 1943 (House Bill 264, 48th Legislature, Regular Session) and 1947 (House Bill 770, 50th Legislature, Regular Session). The law regulated employment agencies, which assisted individuals in obtaining employment within their county, and labor agencies, which hired agricultural workers on behalf of an out-of-state employer. Employment and labor agencies were required to submit to the bureau an application for license as an agent, a licensing fee, and proof the agency had executed a surety bond to ensure protection of the workers. Employment and labor agencies were also required to keep records of their activities, and submit monthly reports to the Bureau of Labor Statistics containing information regarding individuals employed out-of-state. The bureau had the authority to cancel agent or agency licenses based on emigrant complaints or upon the violation of any of the statutes governing their operation.

The bureau was also comprised of three other divisions at this time. The Boxing and Wrestling Division regulated and enforced boxing and wrestling contests and their promotion within the state of Texas. The Oil and Gas Enforcement Division administered the statues regarding the health and safety of industrial workers. The Boiler Inspection Division regulated the use of boilers through the registration and inspection of boilers that operated at a pressure of greater than fifteen pounds per square inch.

In 1973 (House Bill 901, 63rd Legislature, Regular Session) the name of the agency was changed to the Texas Department of Labor and Standards. The commissioner of the Department of Labor and Standards was advised by the following advisory bodies: the Private Employment Agency Regulatory Board, the Performance Certification Board for Mobile Homes, the Board of Boiler Rules, the Industrialized Building Code Council, the Manufactured Homeowners' Recovery Fund Board of Trustees, and the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Contractors Advisory Board. In 1989 (House Bill 863, 71st Legislature, Regular Session) the agency's name was changed to Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, and a six-member Commission of Licensing and Regulation was created to act as the governing body. Members of the commission were appointed by the governor to six-year overlapping terms and confirmed by the senate. The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation became the state's umbrella occupational regulatory agency, responsible for the regulation of 23 occupations and industries. Functions of the agency related to labor were transferred to the Texas Employment Commission (renamed the Texas Workforce Commission in 1995).

Scope and Contents of the Records

The Texas Bureau of Labor Statistics was created to collect and report statistical information to the governor regarding labor and industry within the state of Texas.

Records include correspondence, memoranda, policy and procedural manuals, statistics, orders, case reports, bonds, press releases, and news clippings that relate to the administrative and regulatory functions of the Texas Bureau of Labor Statistics in its enforcement of labor and industry laws and its collection of statistical information. Additionally, correspondence, completed forms, labor listing sheets, and child labor permits, document the bureau's enforcement and regulation of the Employment and Labor Agency Law and the Child Labor Law. Records date 1939-1949 and undated. Topics include employee health and safety, wages, labor unions, boilers, boxing and wrestling contests, migrant labor, and child labor. Correspondents include agency staff, officials of other state agencies, staff and officials of federal agencies, business owners, and the public.

Child labor permit application files, 1946-1948,
1.17 cubic ft.

The Labor Division of the Texas Bureau of Labor Statistic was responsible for the administration of the Child Labor Law, regulating the employment of individuals under the age of seventeen. These records are applications and affidavits for child labor permits dating 1946-1948. Each application includes the name and age of the individual, the occupation and employer, a statement indicating the circumstances necessitating the child's employment, and a physician's signature certifying the individual is physically able to perform the required work. In order to be legally permitted to work, children had to be at least twelve years of age, have completed the fifth grade, have financial circumstances necessitating their employment, and be physically able to perform the work. Additional regulations placed restrictions on the age at which children were permitted to work in certain occupations including employment in mines, quarries, and factories. The law also limited the number of hours and the time of day work was permitted. Certain occupations such as agricultural laborers, nurses, and domestic servants were not regulated by the law.
An application and affidavit for a child labor permit was submitted either by the individual or on behalf of the individual to the county judge of the county in which the individual resided. A copy of each application was then forwarded to the Bureau of Labor Statistics to aid in its administration and investigation of violations.
Arrangement
These records are arranged by the county in which the application was filed.

Labor listing sheets and contracts, 1945-1946,
3.25 cubic ft.

The Employment Agency Division of the Texas Bureau of Labor Statistics enforced the Employment and Labor Agency Law. A portion of the law regulated labor agencies, which hired agricultural workers on behalf of out-of-state employers. The Bureau of Labor Statistics monitored labor agencies by issuing licenses, monitoring their activities, and cancelling licenses, if necessary. These records are labor contracts and labor listing sheets submitted by labor agencies to meet legal requirements, dating 1945-1946. Aside from the requirements that labor agencies pay a licensing fee and execute a compliance bond for the protection of workers, agencies were also required keep records of their activities and submit monthly reports to the Bureau of Labor Statistics containing information regarding individuals employed out-of-state. The law required that these reports include the name, age, sex, race, home address, terms of employment, and destination of the employees. Although the amount of information varies, each form may include: the name, age, sex, race, address of each worker, the name and address of the agent, the name of the employer and its location, the mode of transportation, and other information regarding monetary allowances for travel, and the length of contract. Each form typically lists the above information for individuals within a single family. The majority of the individuals were contracted to perform agricultural labor in states to the north and west of Texas.
Arrangement
These records are arranged by the county in which the worker resided.
