Employee Benefits

Our benefit plan offers employees a choice of the benefits that best meet their needs and the needs of their families.

Health Benefits: Medical, dental, and vision coverage is currently provided through Humana.  All full-time and part-time employees are eligible for dental and vision coverage.  At this time, only full-time employees are eligible for medical coverage.  Benefit eligibility begins of the 1st day of the month following the completion of sixty (60) days of employment.

Personal Time Off: Regular full-time employees will be awarded PTO according to their years of service.  Regular part-time employees receive 7 days of PTO for every 2,000 hours worked.

Short Term Disability: Full-time employees are awarded disability earnings to use for a qualifying injury or illness that prevents one from performing their job duties.   This benefit is determined by length of service.

Long Term Disability: Full-time employees working also accumulate disability earnings to use after an employee has been on an approved medical disability for 90 days.
