The College offers two types of dental plans, a Dental Expense
Plan and several Dental Plan Organizations (DPO).
Both types of plans pay the full cost of cleaning and exams
which can be done twice per year (every six months).
Dental Expense Plan
The Dental Expense Plan is a traditional indemnity- type plan
administered by Aetna Dental. The plan allows employees to
choose any licensed dentist for dental care. If the dentist
doesn’t accept dental insurance, you will pay the dentist and
then submit a claim form for reimbursement.
The annual plan deductible is $50 per person; $150 per family.
The deductible does not apply to diagnostic, preventive, and
orthodontic services. After the annual deductible is satisfied,
reimbursement is a percentage of the reasonable and customary
charges for services that are covered under the plan.
25
Dental Plan Organizations
The Dental Plan Organizations (DPOs) are companies that contract with a
network of providers for dental services. You must use providers
participating with the DPO you select to receive coverage. There is no
annual deductible with the DPOs and you will usually pay a co-pay for
services such as fillings, crowns etc. There are several DPOs to choose from
in the State Group Dental Program including the following:
oAetna DMO
oAtlantic Southern Dental (Benecare)

Time Employees
Part time employees work a proportionate full time equivalent
(FTE) schedule. For example, a part time employee who works an
FTE of .50 works 17.50 hours per week. The daily schedule is
determined by the supervisor.
Part time employees earn the applicable sick, vacation, and
administrative time at the prorated rate according to their FTE. For
example, a 12 month part time classified employee who works at
FTE .50 will earn 7.5 days of sick leave per year (starting the year
after he/she is hired) or 52.50 hours per year and 6 days of vacation
per year or 42 hours of vacation.
Recording Leave via Monthly Time Reports
At the end of each month, all full time and part time employees will receive a monthly time
report which will be scanned on the 15th of the next month. The administrative assistant in
each department distributes and collects the time sheets. Complete your monthly time report
as follows:
1. Record the number of hours of leave used on the appropriate date of the month. Leave
the columns blank if you did not use any leave.
2. Total the hours of leave used at the bottom of the time sheet in the sick leave column,
vacation leave column, administrative leave column etc. Be sure to double check the addition
and bubble in the information in the correct number columns. Please note that there are 2
decimal points, i.e., 4 should be 4.00.
3. The employee and supervisor will then sign and return the time sheet to the Office of
Human Resources.
Please note that detailed instruction on how to complete the monthly timesheets is
available as a power-point presentation on the Human Resources’ web site.
Leave Payout upon Termination and Retirement
When an administrative AFT employee, non-unit, or classified
employee terminates employment with The College, the
employee will receive a payout for earned but unused vacation
and energy leave. Sick leave will not be paid out.
When an administrative AFT employee, non-unit or classified
employee officially retires from The College, the employee will
receive a payout for one-half the value of his/her sick accrued
leave up to a maximum of $15,000.
Faculty and Grant employees do not receive a payout for any
earned but unused leave.
Family Leave Program
Employees requiring leave because of their own illness, the birth of a child, or to
care for a seriously ill family member may be covered under the Federal Family
and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and/or the New Jersey Family Leave Act
(NJFLA).
Employees not eligible for FMLA or NJFLA will be granted leave in accordance
with any legal requirements governing the type of leave, in accordance with The
College’s established leave practices and with consideration for current business
needs.
Employees planning for medical or family leave should contact the Benefits
Administrator in the Office of Human Resources at (609)771-3306.
Leave of Absence for Eligible Employees
Employees injured while in the performance of their job may be
entitled workers compensation leave benefits.
Eligible employees may apply for voluntary furlough or paid
sabbatical leaves.
Employees in need of leave beyond State and Federal entitlements
should contact the office of Human Resources for additional
information. Such leaves are granted at the discretion of the
College based upon operational need.
Workers Compensation
Employees who incur work related injuries or illnesses are
eligible to receive medical treatment through The College’s
Worker's Compensation Program. When an employee sustains
a work related injury, he/she must report the injury to a
supervisor on the day that the injury happened. For serious
injuries, employees should call 911 to receive emergency care.
For non-emergency injuries, the employee should report to the
Benefits Administrator and complete The First Report of
Accident. The employee will then be sent to Professional
HealthCare Services for a medical evaluation and treatment.
Paid Sabbatical Leave of Absence
The sabbatical leave is an investment for the purpose of
aiding the qualified recipient to become more productive
and useful to The College. Sabbatical leave with pay may
be granted per the stipulations in the current AFT union
contract.
While an employee is on paid sabbatical, The College
will provide full health insurance benefits as if the
employee were actively working.
How to Apply for a Leave of Absence
When an employee has a need to take a Medical, Family,
or Personal Leave of Absence, contact the Benefits
Administrator in the Office of Human Resources at
(609)771-3306 to discuss your rights, responsibilities and
the impact of leaves on your employee benefits.
