Open Enrollment
   Open Enrollment
   Each year during the month of November, Pulaski Technical College
    conducts an Open Enrollment period for all benefits. During this time,
    employees may elect to make changes to their existing benefits
    coverage. For example, if someone has “employee only” coverage and
    wishes to change to “family coverage”, they may make this change
    during the month of November.
   During the course of the year, employees may make changes to their
    benefits due to "qualifying events". Qualifying events may occur due
    to change in marital status, the birth or adoption of a child, a change in
    the spouse’s job, etc. If you feel you have a qualifying event and
    would like to make a change, please contact the Human Resources
   To make Changes in Benefits Coverage:

    Family and Medical
    Leave Act (FMLA)

The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993
entitles “eligible” employees to a total of
twelve (12) workweeks of unpaid leave during
a 12-month period

   For the serious illness of the employee
   For the serious illness of family member
   For the birth or adoption of a child

Family and Medical
   Leave Act
   As of January 28, 2008, FMLA provides two important new leave rights related
    to military services:

        New Qualifying Reason for Leave – Eligible employees are entitled up to 12 weeks
         of leave because of “any qualifying exigency” arising out of the fact that the spouse,
         son, daughter, or parent of the employee is on active duty, or has been notified of an
         impending call to active duty status, in support of a contingency operation. By the
         terms of the statute, this provision requires the Secretary of Labor to issue regulations
         defining “any qualifying exigency.” In the interim, employers are encouraged to
         provide this type of leave to qualifying employees.
        New Leave Entitlement – An eligible employee who is the spouse, son, daughter,
         parent, or next of kin of a covered service-member who is recovering from a serious
         illness or injury sustained in the line of duty on active duty is entitled to up to 26
         weeks of leave in a single 12-month period to care for the service-member. This
         provision became effective immediately upon enactment. This military caregiver leave
         is available during “a single 12-month period” during which an eligible employee is
         entitled to a combined total of 26 weeks of all types of FMLA leave.

        Additional information on the amendments and a version of Title I of the FMLA with
         the new statutory language incorporated is available on the FMLA Amendments
         Website at

                                 (Board Policy 2.53)

    Maternity Leave

   An employee may elect to take
    maternity leave without pay without
    exhausting accumulated sick and
    annual leave

   Maternity leave runs concurrently
    with FMLA

                               (Board Policy 2.54)

 Military Leave

Full-time employees who are
members of the the National Guard
or any of the reserve branches of the
US Armed Forces are granted paid
leave at the rate of fifteen (15)
working days per calendar year, plus
necessary travel time for annual
training purposes

                                (Board Policy 2.54)

Court and Jury Leave

 An employee who serves as a juror or is
 subpoenaed as a witness to give a
 deposition in a court or hearing is
 entitled to receive normal and full
 compensation in addition to any fees
 paid for such service. Act 1845 of 2005
 prohibits State employees from retaining
 witness or mileage fees when
 subpoenaed as a witness for a matter
 within the scope of their employment.

Leave Without Pay

Employees exhausting paid leave
benefits may be eligible to receive
leave without pay at the College’s
discretion upon approval by the

     Catastrophic Leave
     Bank Program
   Employees may voluntarily donate accrued annual and
    sick leave to the Catastrophic Leave Bank as long as they
    have at least 80 hours of leave remaining after the

   The eligible employee must be a regular, benefits-eligible,
    full-time, employee of the college for at least two years

   Eligible employees who exhaust their annual and sick
    leave due to catastrophic illness of themselves or family
    members may apply for paid catastrophic leave for up to
    6 months

   Employees must have at least 80 hours of accrued,
    unused combined annual and sick leave at the onset of
    the catastrophic illness to be eligible. This requirement
    may be waived based on extraordinary circumstances if
    approved by the President
