Each year, our work positively affects tens of thousands of Texans who are fighting to obtain or keep the essentials of life — including home, job, benefits, and family. We provide high-quality legal representation, advice, advocacy, and education at no cost to underserved communities across the state.
BENEFITS & PERKS
Our health plan for full-time employees includes medical, dental, vision, life insurance, and short/long term disability coverage. We pay 100% of employee costs and 50% of family coverage, with the option to purchase additional life insurance.
Our flexible coverage options allow employees to choose between two medical plans; a Co-Pay Plan or and a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) Plan. For all HDHP Plan members, the organization contributes $2,000+ annually to a Health Savings Account (HSA) while also providing the option for employee contributions to the account. Eligible members have the option to contribute to medical, dependent daycare, and limited purpose Flexible Spending Account (FSA) Plans as well. Because health extends outside the doctor's office, we provide our full-time employees with an unlimited membership to a nearby gym.
Additionally, we recognize 14 paid holidays a year, offer generous PTO, provide new parent leave, and help our employees save for retirement. We offer a 403(b) plan for employee contributions — and upon the employee meeting eligibility requirements — we contribute to a Simplified Employee Pension Individual Retirement Arrangement (SEP IRA) on the employee's behalf. Plus, TLSC provides most employees the opportunity to telecommute.
