Workers compensation insurance is designed to cover all occupational injuries and illnesses. It is paid by the College and is effective from your first day of work. Workers compensation insurance provides benefits that may apply as a result of a work-related illness or injury. These benefit payments may cover expenses incurred for medical care, replacement of a portion of your income lost as a result of disability, and lump-sum payments to beneficiaries in case of death.
If you are injured while you are at work, or become ill as a result of your job, you must report this to your supervisor immediately. In all cases of work related injury or illness, no matter how minor, an Accident/Injury Report form must be completed and forwarded to the Office of Human Resources. This record-keeping is required by OSHA and MIOSHA.
CCS employees are eligible for a long-term disability income plan through a third party insurer after one year of employment. CCS’s long-term disability plan is an income protection plan for eligible employees and does not guarantee a job, or any particular job, following an absence. Full-time employees who are unable to work as the result of an accident or illness are eligible for a maximum of 60% of their regular salary, up to a maximum of $15,000 per month, when integrated with other benefits. You will remain eligible for benefits for as long as you are disabled, up to age 65. This plan has a twenty six-week qualification period, a portion of which may be covered by CCS’s short-term disability income plan.

The Employee Reimbursement Account enables you to pay a portion of your Uninsured Health Care and Dependent Care expenses with pretax dollars. Prior to the beginning of each plan year, you will have the opportunity to elect to fund your Reimbursement Account for the coming year. The amount that you select will be deducted from your gross salary through automatic payroll deductions. Then, during the plan year, you may submit claims to the Administrator to reimburse yourself for health care expenses and/or dependent care expenses incurred during the plan year that were not reimbursed by your insurance plans.
Medical, dental and vision insurance are available to all full-time employees on the first of the month following thirty days of employment.

The employee will have his/her contribution deducted on a pre-tax basis.
