Employment & Benefits
This section provides an overview of many benefits available to faculty and staff. In the event of conflict between the overview provided in this handbook and the plan document or insurance plan, the plan document or insurance plan will govern. Complete descriptions are not possible in the handbook; employees should contact Human Resources for specific plan details. The Labor Agreement governs in the case of Union employees in all aspects of this section. Regular employees who have a schedule involving a (.46) FTE or above are eligible to participate in the College’s benefit programs.
Carleton College will comply with all applicable laws such as FMLA, federal, state, and any applicable regulations.
Open Enrollment (Renewal Option)
Each year a specific time is designated as the Open Enrollment/Renewal Option Period for Carleton benefit plans. During this time employees will be informed of premium rate and plan design changes and may change from one plan to another. Enrollment in the health care spending account and/or dependent care spending account is done at this time as well. Human Resources will notify employees via e-mail and through the Carleton Weekly of the Open Enrollment Period.
