(Reference: Government Code, Sections 552.021, 552.023, and 559.004) Please notify your local HR Administrator if you need to request correction of any information collected by the TJJD.

Important Information

Applicants seeking initial or re-employment with the TJJD must complete the following four documents:(1) the State of Texas Application for Employment; (2) the TJJD Employment Application Supplement; (3) the Child Abuse Registry Check Consent Form; and (4) the Disclosure of PREA Employment Standards Violation form.

Current TJJD employees seeking promotions or transfers must only complete the State of Texas Application for Employment and the Disclosure of PREA Employment Standards Violation form. The TJJD Employment Application Supplement is not required for current TJJD employees. The human resources director or designee will determine when the Child Abuse Registry Check Consent Form is required for current employees.
