WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT GRANT EMPLOYEE
BENEFITS & COMPENSATION SUMMARY
Less than Full Time Employees (less than 40 hours per week)
September 2014
Your position is funded by a grant which is performance-based. This grant, and consequently this
position, may be terminated at any time if the grantor determines that performance measures are
not being adequately met, if funding is reduced, and/or no longer available.
In addition, as a grant-funded, non-union employee, your employment is at-will and the
employment relationship may be ended by either party at any time, with or without notice.
Staff in this category do not receive regular raises, step increases, and/or cost-of-living
adjustments. We strive to pay hourly wages and salaries that are competitive with those in our
community and industry and that recognize individual effort and contribution to the success of
the Workforce Development department, and the College as a whole. Established wage or salary
ranges are reviewed by the Executive Dean each year during the budget and grant award process.
When possible, raises will be considered if there are sufficient funds in grant budgets.
The following summarizes all of the benefits provided to less than full time grant employees,
except for those benefits that are mandated by law. In the event there is a conflict between this
summary and the insurance plan or document itself or the plan document, the contents of the plan
document shall prevail.
Calculating the Benefit Eligibility Factor
Because the less than full-time grant Employee has not yet worked a complete fiscal year, the
initial benefit eligibility factor is an estimate. This is determined by multiplying the number of
hours per week the Employee is scheduled to work by the number of weeks scheduled to work,
and dividing the total by 2080 (the total number of hours a full-time Employee works). This
estimated benefit eligibility factor will be used until the less than full-time Employee has worked
an entire fiscal year.
The benefit eligibility factor for less than full-time Employees is recalculated at the beginning of
each fiscal year after a full fiscal year has been worked. This is determined by taking the total
number of hours actually worked during the previous fiscal year and dividing the total by 2080
(the total number of hours a full-time Employee works).
New Hire Eligibility Criteria
Medical, dental and vision insurance will begin the first of the month following the date of hire.
Health Insurance
Employees may choose from one (1) of three (3) PPO plan options through Blue Cross/Blue
Shield of Michigan. The choices include: one (1) Conventional Plan and two (2) High
Deductible Health Plans. Employees can also contribute to a Health Savings Account if electing
one of the High Deductible Health Plans.

Premium Contributions
As required under PA152 of 2011, employees may be required to pay a portion of the medical
premium through bi-weekly payroll deductions.
A part-time employee who elects coverage for him/herself or him/herself and his/her eligible
dependents must pay, in addition to the full-time employee premium contribution, a prorated
amount of the College’s premium contribution based on their benefit eligibility factor (BEF) in
effect at the time of application for the benefit, with the balance of the premium being paid by the
College. (See Article 19, Section 2 for benefit eligibility factor calculation rules.)

If an employee’s BEF (percentage of full time hours worked) is .80 or greater, the
employee is treated as a full-time employee and will not be required to pay anything in
addition to the full-time premium.

If an employee’s BEF is less than .80, their additional premium portion will be calculated
as follows, (.80 – BEF) x College’s premium contribution.
The above scale is applicable only to the calculation of part-time employee contributions for the
Medical Insurance benefit and is not applicable to any other benefit.
See your HR Representative for current rates and accurate calculation of your premium
contribution, if applicable.
Health Savings Accounts
Employees that elect a High Deductible Health Plan are eligible to participate in a Health
Savings Account. The Health Savings Account allows you to use pretax dollars to pay for health
expenses not covered by another source, as defined by the IRS.

to age nineteen (19). Employees who elect dental coverage are responsible for a prorated amount
of the premium based on their benefit eligibility factor. The College will pay for dental insurance
for the Employee only (based on their benefit eligibility factor). If the Employee elects couple or
family coverage, he/she will be responsible for paying the additional premium cost.
Vision
Effective January 1, 2015, the vision plan provides 100% coverage for in network exams, lenses
and medically necessary contacts. In network frames are covered at $65 plus 20% off remaining
balance. In network cosmetic contacts are covered at $125 plus 10% off remaining balance.
Employees who elect vision coverage are responsible for a prorated amount of the premium
based on their benefit eligibility factor. The College will pay for coverage for the Employee only

he/she will be responsible for paying the additional premium cost.

regular rate of pay. This will be calculated after all leave data entry has been completed.

compensatory time at time and one-half (1½) the hours worked in conformity with Federal and

compensation.

websites.
Verification of Status: In order to provide verification of employment the employee shall process
the grant through the Office of Human Resources by completing an Educational Grant Waiver &
Information form.
Repayment: The employee is responsible for any charges if they do not complete a credit class
with a passing grade or if the class is dropped. (A passing grade is 1.0 or above, Audit, or

The employee will also be responsible to repay any charges for non-credit courses under the same
circumstances as if the employee were a paying customer. (For example, an employee registers
for a Continuing Education class but never attends and does not drop before the deadline.)
Payment to the College by the employee shall be by automatic payroll deduction of equal
amounts each pay period over a period of twelve (12) months. The College is specifically
authorized to initiate payroll deductions once the charges have been recorded and the employee
has been notified that the requirements of the Educational Grant have not been fulfilled. The
employee may authorize a repayment period of less than twelve (12) months or may pay the full
amount due in a single lump sum. If the repayment obligation has not been fulfilled at the time
of the employee’s separation from employment, the College is authorized to deduct the full
remaining obligation from the employee’s final paycheck. Any remaining balance will be
pursued through the College’s normal accounts receivable and collections processes.
In the event that an employee’s employment with the College should end (for any reason) prior to
the end of the semester, the charges for the current class(s) they are enrolled in will be withheld
from the employee’s final paycheck until a final grade is given for the class(s). If the employee
completes the class(s) with a passing grade, the withheld funds will be returned to the employee.
Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
Employees have available to them an Employee Assistance Program operated by Help Net. The
Employee Assistance Program provides counseling to the employee and any household members
at no cost to the employee for a variety of issues.
Employee Computer Purchase Program
The College offers a convenient computer loan program in order to encourage employee’s use of
computer technology for personal and professional development. Employees can finance a home
computer system, for up to $3,000, through the Employee Computer Purchase Program.
Payments are then made through payroll deduction for up to twenty-four (24) months.
Employees interested in this program should contact the Accounting Department for details.
