Employment Benefits

Employment with the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians has many benefits. We are proud to offer our Tribal Government employees the benefits outlined in this section. The Office of Risk Management is here to assist employees with employment benefits including insurance and retirement. See the Risk Management section for a complete explanation of employee benefits.


All new and returning employees must attend Tribal Government orientation at the beginning of their employment or re-employment. A representative from the Human Resources Office, Tribal Safety Office, and Risk Management Office shall give the administrative orientation to all new regular employees. The Department Head and Program Director should orient each new employee about their program goals and objectives and their specific duties and responsibilities.

The following steps shall be followed for orientation of new employees by a Human Resources representative. On the first day of employment (if applicable), the employee must attend Administrative Orientation. The new employee will be given an orientation package by the Human Resources Representative containing, but not limited to, the following:

  • Tribal personnel policies (for employee to keep)
