Texas Government Code
Sec. § 411.0071
Direct Appointment to Management Team Positions by Director


The director may designate a head of a division or a position that involves working directly with the director as a management team position.


The director may directly appoint a person to a position designated as a management team position under Subsection (a) under criteria determined by the director and approved by the commission. The director’s appointment of a person to a management team position or transfer of a person from a management team position to another position for which the person is qualified, as determined by the director, is not subject to Section 411.007 (Officers and Employees).


A person appointed to a management team position under this section, on removal from that position, shall be returned to the position the person held immediately before appointment to the management team position or to a position of equivalent rank. If a person is removed from a management team position as a result of the filing of a formal charge of misconduct, this subsection applies only if the person is exonerated for the misconduct charged.
Added by Acts 1999, 76th Leg., ch. 1189, Sec. 7, eff. Sept. 1, 1999.
