Shawnee Health Service is committed to providing its employees with a comprehensive fringe benefits program, which includes:
Medical, Dental, and Vision Insurance
Employees working at least 30 hours a week are entitled to medical insurance coverage for them and their families. Employees working at least 20 hours a week are entitled to dental and all employees are entitled to vision insurance coverage for them and their families.
In terms of Life Insurance, Long-Term Disability, and AD&D benefits, we categorize our employees into four different classes. The classes are based off a variety of things that are defined for our employees to easily understand their status.
All employees working 20 or more hours are eligible for the following: short-term disability insurance, accident insurance, and critical illness insurance.
All employees are eligible for a variety of flexible spending accounts such as medical, child care, and non-employer sponsored. FSA medical funds rollover year over year, but amounts may vary.
Paid Time Off
Vacation, Personal, and Sick Time
We encourage our employees to have time to themselves. Our vacation day allocation plan allows for employees to garner a generous amount of vacation days throughout their employment.
When hired, you will receive four (4) hours per pay period that accrue towards vacation days for you to utilize. This totals to 96 hours per year of paid time off that will continue to roll over until the end of employment. As you continue your career with Shawnee, hours of earned time off per pay period increases, maxing out at 28 days per year. On top of vacation time, employees receive personal time as well. Full time employees receive 24 hours a year, and that amount is prorated for part time employees.
Full-time employees also accrue ½ day per month for sick days.
Employees who work a minimum of 24 hours per week are eligible to receive holiday pay.
We strive for our employees to live comfortably after employment. Our 401(k) plans allow for 0-100% of your yearly income to be contributed to your account. Shawnee Health contributes 3% of your annual salary.
Shawnee Health Service maintains a 401(k) Retirement Plan for employees with 4 contribution types:
- Salary deferral – Pre-Tax 401(k) deferrals or Roth 401(k) deferrals (after-tax).
- Safe Harbor contribution.
- Non-Elective or Discretionary Contribution (Profit Share).
- Employee “rollover” contributions.
Student Loan Repayment
Crippling student loan debt is becoming more prominent than ever before. Even though amounts change, we always attempt to have loan repayment available to our employees. We assist our employees in repaying student loan debt obtained while earning job-related degrees, licenses, certifications and similar educational pursuits.
Shawnee Health Service offers an education assistance program to assist employees in developing their professional growth.
Equal Opportunity Employer and Provider
COVID-19 vaccination is a mandatory condition of employment. Absent an approved exemption/accommodation, all employees must be fully vaccinated by receiving both doses of a two-dose vaccine series (Pfizer or Moderna) or one dose of the single-dose vaccine (Janssen) at least fourteen (14) days prior to or on their first day of work. If not already vaccinated, new hires cannot begin work until they: (1) are fourteen (14) days post one dose of the single-dose vaccine (Janssen); (2) are fourteen (14) days post second dose of a two-dose vaccine series (Pfizer or Moderna); or (3) receive an approved exemption/accommodation. Employees who refuse COVID-19 vaccination in accordance with this mandate absent an approved exemption/accommodation will be considered to have voluntarily resigned from employment or, if an individual has not yet started employment, their offer of employment will be withdrawn. Shawnee Health Service reserves the right to not offer employment to unvaccinated individuals if staffing needs cannot accommodate a delayed start date.
