Employee Eligibility Change

Starting July 1, 2017, employees must maintain at least 30 hours of service per week in order to be eligible for insurance benefits. Hours of service include paid time off including but not limited to sick, vacation and comp time hours. Hours for variable hour employees are measured in accordance with the City's measurement period to determine insurance eligibility. Further detail is outlined in the Insurance Handbook.

Employees who are recorded in the payroll system on June 30, 2017 as being scheduled to work between 20 and 29 hours weekly will be “grandfathered” and will remain eligible for insurance, provided they don't change position or employment status. Once a "grandfathered" employee changes position or employment status in the future, grandfathered status is forfeited, and the employee must meet the new eligibility requirement of 30 or more hours of service weekly in order to maintain insurance eligibility.
