412.3 CLASSIFIED EMPLOYEE GROUP BENEFITS

Code No.  412.3

 

CLASSIFIED EMPLOYEE GROUP BENEFITS

 

Classified employees may be eligible for group insurance benefits as determined by the board and required by law.  The board will select the group insurance program and the insurance company which will provide the program. Since the district employs less than an average of at least 50 full-time employees (including an equivalent for part-time employees), the district is not subject to the ACAs Employer Mandate.

 

Classified employees who work 35 hours per week are eligible to participate in the group health insurance plan. Regular part-time classified employees who wish to purchase insurance coverage may participate in group insurance programs by meeting the requirements of the insurer. Regular classified employees who wish to purchase insurance coverage for their spouse or dependents may do so by meeting the requirements of the insurer.

 

This policy statement does not guarantee a certain level of benefits.  The board shall have the authority and right to change or eliminate group insurance programs for its licensed employees.
