DALLAS (1080 KRLD) -  The Dallas sick leave ordinance takes effect today despite a lawsuit aimed at blocking it. 

The ordinance mandates that companies doing business in Dallas provide paid sick leave.

Just this week, an Austin group filed a lawsuit calling the rule un-constitutional and seeking a temporary restraining order. 

But a judge has not even been assigned to the case yet, so there is nothing to hinder Dallas from enforcing the ordinance.
