I'm converting a MySQL query to T-SQL

I'm using SQL Server 2019

I have a line of MySQL code like this that  subtracts one day from today's date and sets that value to the  employee_start_date column.

employee_start_date = (DATE_SUB(CURDATE(), INTERVAL 1 DAY)

Open in new window

What is the equivalent of the above line in T-SQL?

So far I have this:

-- T-SQL code
employee_start_date = CAST(GETDATE() AS date)

Open in new window
