Worker's Compensation Information

The District, in accordance with state law, provides workers’ compensation benefits to employees who suffer a work-related illness or are injured on the job. The District’s coverage is through Texas Mutual. Workers comp benefits pay for medical treatment and make up for part of the income lost while recovering.

All work-related accidents or injuries must be reported immediately to the employee’s supervisor. The supervisor will then report the injury to the Benefits Department.

Employees who are unable to work due to a work-related injury must contact the Benefits Department immediately and will be notified of their rights and responsibilities under the Texas Labor Code.

For questions regarding Worker's Compensation, contact:

Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

The Family Medical Leave Act entitles eligible employees to take up to 12 workweeks (duty days) of unpaid, job-protected leave in a 12-month period for specified family and medical reasons, or for any “qualifying exigency” arising out of the fact that a covered military member is on active duty, or has been notified of an impending call or order to active duty, in support of a contingency operation.

The FMLA also allows an eligible employee who is a spouse, son, daughter, parent, or next of kin of a covered service member with a serious injury or illness up to a total of 26 workweeks of unpaid leave during a single 12-month period to care for the service member.
