Sachse is a city in Collin and Dallas Counties in the U.S. state of Texas. It is a northeastern suburb of Dallas. As of the 2000 census, the city population was 9,751, but as of 2004, the population was estimated at 16,200. Northeast of Dallas, Sachse is approximately 1 mile (1.6 km) north of the President George Bush Turnpike and Firewheel Town Center. Sachse is home to the 18-hole Woodbridge Golf Course, home of the Northern Texas Chapter of the PGA of America. Sachse was founded by William Sachse, a Prussian immigrant, in 1845.

What is employment law?
