Benefit Package

Health/Dental/Vision Insurances

ICC has partnered with the State of Kansas Group and offers a choice of three different health plans, with three different providers. The plan(s) can be accessed at: http://www.kdheks.gov/hcf/sehp/NSEGroup.htm

ICC pays for 95% of employee coverage and 55% of coverage above “employee only”.

KPERS retirement (5-year vesting)-mandatory, 6% of gross wages each pay; includes life insurance and long-term disability insurance at no cost to the employee. See details on our benefits page. Optional Group Life Insurance is also available for purchase; additional coverage for the employee and coverage for the spouse.

Optional: ICC will match up to 3% of your annual salary (full-time employees), in either a pre-tax or after-tax investment, if you choose to participate. Vesting is five years.

We also have many optional insurances (cancer, short-term disability, life, accident, etc) available for purchase.

Below is the sick, vacation and personal time allowed annually. We also get some paid time off with each college break.

Personal

Three (3) days of personal leave are granted to each full-time employee annually with supervisor approval. After completion of one year of employment, continuing part-time hourly employees shall be granted one (1) supervisor-approved personal leave day per year. Hourly employees who have completed one full year of continuous part-time employment at the time of policy adoption have met the criteria.

Sick

Each employee receives fifteen (15) sick days per year per Board Policy PSL 703 for employee absences related to his or her illness or non-work related injuries. The employee may also use sick days for the full-time care of the employee's immediate family to include the spouse, significant other, parents (including in-laws), step-parents, children, step-children, siblings, grand-children, great grand-children, grandparents, great grand-parents, and those others for whom the employee is the primary care-giver, or persons whose residence is in the home of the employee.

  1. Request for sick leave should be submitted to the immediate supervisor using the leave request forms either prior to anticipated leave or as soon as possible upon return.
  2. A report of accumulated days is accessible via the Student Information System.
  3. Unused annual sick leave will accumulate to a total of 90 days.
  4. Employees of Independence Community College whose employment is terminated or who resign prior to retirement do not receive pay for unused sick leave.
  5. In the event of the death of an employee the College will compensate the deceased employee's beneficiary or beneficiaries for the unused days of sick leave.
  6. Sick pools are provided for each employment group to be used for employee sickness or injury. Refers to Board Policy PSL-703.
