Texas: Manufacturer Was Statutory Employer of Worker Supplied by Personnel Staffing Firm

September 02, 2016 (1 min read)

Where a worker was employed by a subcontractor who supplied staff to an employer that set the worker’s schedule, assignments, and training, the employer was the worker’s statutory employer and, since it was a workers’ compensation subscriber, the employer was immune from suit following the worker’s injury. The court noted that the worker performed his work on the employer’s premises and alongside the employer’s other employees and had received workers’ compensation benefits from the subcontractor’s insurance carrier.
