- To serve as the primary document to record an employee's daily work schedule and assigned tasks.

When to Prepare
The employer completes this form on the hire date and any time one or more changes are made to either the employee's work schedule or assigned tasks. This form is not required when a program-specific form or other documentation is provided.
Number of Copies
Original and two copies for Initial and for any Change to the employee's work schedule or to the tasks to be performed by the employee.
The employer keeps the original form and gives one copy to the employee and one copy to the Consumer Directed Services Agency (CDSA) for the employee's Initial schedule and for any Change to the schedule. For any change to the assigned tasks, the employer keeps the original form and gives a copy to the employee; if a change does not affect the employee's work schedule, a copy is not sent to the CDSA.
This form must be printed or downloaded from the Consumer Directed Services Handbook at: http://www.dads.state.tx.us/handbooks/cds/forms/index.asp
The employer and the CDSA must keep this form for five years after termination of the employee or until all outstanding litigation, claims and audits are resolved.
