B.P.Camden reported on a meeting of Tom Gausvik with the WFPA Committee on General Faculty discussing part-time benefits.
Mr. Gausvik is preparing a report to be complete 12/1/95 on health benefits for all part-time salaried employees (faculty and staff). Currently the state code allows health benefits for full-time employees only.
The options to be presented in his
1) allow part-time employees into the state plan (would need state approval);
2) set up a separate group plan (this would require at least 250 employees to participate to be viable).
Action: Bill Randolph will write a letter requesting a copy of the 12/1/95 report.
J.Clack reported on the University Benefits Committee. Kathy Reed is an ex-officio member. The instructions to the Committee are that they can consider any benefits changes as long as it wouldn't cost the university any additional money.
