Nice work if you can get it


The Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation has posted job openings for three Appeals Panel judges. This, apparently, is in response to three recent departures – we’ve learned that Rafael Quintanilla, Gary Kilgore, and Tom Knapp have retired. We’re envious, and we wish them well. 

Speaking of envy, the Division’s job posting describes some sweet fringe benefits. They include the following:

•    Telecommuting
•    96 hours of accrued vacation a year
•    96 hours of accrued sick leave a year
•    20+ holidays every year
