And since Texas is a right to work state, you'll have no recourse.
Just FYI, if the employer leases in an office building then they don't own the parking lot. It is a common area. They also don't have any say about the hallways, bathrooms, elevators or anything like that. Those are all common areas that the landlord keeps.
But they can still fire you at any time so it doesn't really matter.
