This policy applies to regular status and extended temporary faculty, teachers, and staff in all offices and divisions of Gallaudet University.
By an Act of Congress, all regular status employees are eligible to participate in the Federal Employees Health Benefits (FEHB) program, the Federal Employees Group Life Insurance (FEGLI) program, the Federal FSA Program (FSAFEDS), Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP), and the Federal Long-Term Care Insurance. Extended temporary employees may participate in the FEHB program after one year of continuous service. Participation in both programs is voluntary to the extent prescribed by the carrier and applicable laws and regulations. The University follows the regulations, eligibility requirements (including a minimum number of hours worked per week), and fee schedules established by these programs.
In addition to these programs, the Board of Trustees has authorized the University to supplement these benefits with other insurances that provide for the health and well-being of the community. These additional benefits must be consistent with the University’s position to maintain a competitive benefits posture with other universities in the area and must be cost effective and within funding constraints. Presently included for regular status employees are an alternative life insurance plan, dental insurance, and long-term disability insurance. The University follows the regulations, eligibility requirements (including status, waiting period, and a minimum number of hours worked per week), and fee schedules established in the contract. Additions, major revisions, or deletions normally require Board approval.
In compliance with applicable laws and regulations, the University ensures that employees are covered by a Workers’ Compensation program and Unemployment Compensation program. Eligibility and the extent of benefits are governed by the appropriate regulations.
