Each year, our work positively affects tens of thousands of Texans 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.
For all health plan members, the organization contributes $2,400 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.
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 also make a contribution to the employee’s account. Plus, TLSC provides most employees the opportunity to telecommute.
