Fired Texans Insurance President Gets Job Back
RICHARDSON, Texas -- Kevin M. Curley, the president of Texans Insurance Group who was fired in April 2007 and filed suit against the CUSO and the credit union, is back on the job.
According to Curley's suit, Texans Insurance Group fired him for insubordination, failure to set up an enhanced benefits package, failure to set up an office for Gary Kirkindoll, president of Texans Services Group, engaging in discussions with a CUSO accounting clerk about a potential job opportunity with one of Curley's other companies and the alleged unauthorized issuance of tail policies.
In July, a Texas arbitrator determined Curley was fired without reasonable or justifiable cause and ruled that he was entitled to his job back and the payment of back pay and benefits. Matt Davis, executive vice president at Texans CU, confirmed that Curley was reinstated on Sept. 1 and has been paid retroactively. Curley's attorneys have said the executive was due to be paid roughly $350,000. He did not provide further details on the matter.
