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.
Enrollment in Course of Instruction
The College will waive tuition charges for benefit eligible staff employees who enroll, either for credit or audit, in up to three courses per year/one per term in regularly scheduled courses offered by any Carleton department of instruction. The employee must first obtain approval of the Registrar and then the approval of their supervisor. The supervisor or department head may not be able to grant approval depending on operational requirements, but is urged to do so if at all possible. Course hours are unpaid and missed work time must be made up.
