Disability Benefits

Print Send Bookmark
Sick Leave
As a regular employee, you will accrue about 12 days of sick leave per year. Sick leave is paid time off when you are ill, injured, quarantined, or when you receive medical, dental or other health services.

On-The-Job Injury
If you are injured as a direct result of your work at the Airport, you are eligible for:

  • Medical expenses associated with the on-the-job injury.

  • Compensation allowed by the Workers’ Compensation laws of Texas.

  • Other amounts if you are totally and permanently disabled or die.

  • A salary continuation program that makes up the difference (if any) between workers’ compensation payments and a percent of your pay based on your length of service.

Short-Term Disability
Short-term disability is a benefit for extended absences due to a non-job-related illness or injury. This benefit includes time away from work, extended sick leave pay and salary continuation. Short-term disability is for a maximum of 180 calendar days. While on short-term disability, you may not do any other work or any activity that is inconsistent with a full and speedy recovery.

Long-Term Disability
If you are away from work due to an illness or injury for more than 180 calendar days, you may be eligible for long-term disability benefits. If you are approved for long-term disability payments, you will receive about 60% of your final monthly salary.
