Jessie Haynes's workman's comp claim denied

Posted:
BEAUMONT -

Beaumont Independent School District board member Tom Neild said the district's habit of dragging its feet on investigations is costing taxpayers thousands of dollars.

That was Neild's response after he received confirmation that the state had denied Jessie Haynes' worker's compensation claim.

The district's communications director has been on assault leave since August 5 of last year.

She claims she suffered the assault during a scuffle with board member Mike Neil when she blocked him from a doorway.

Haynes has been charged with obstructing a public passageway.  Her trial is in May.

Trustee Tom Neild also told us the district needs to seek reimbursement from Haynes.

We contacted BISD administrators and were told they could not comment on personnel matters.
