All employees are scheduled for a benefits orientation when they complete their paperwork with Human Resources.  However, here is some basic information to help you better understand your benefits.

When am I going to get paid?

  • Exempt pay periods run from the 20th to the 19th.
  • Exempt employees are paid monthly on the first of every month, except in December.  The January 1st paycheck will always be paid on December 31st.

  • Faculty must report any absences of more than five consecutive days for record keeping required by the Provost Office and Human Resources.

What are my benefits?

ACU offers health insurance, prescription insurance, dental, vision, life insurance, disability insurance, and non-reimbursed medical flex and dependent care flex.

What happens if I get injured at work?
If you are injured at work, you or your supervisor must complete an accidental report within 24 hours of the injury. If the injury is not reported in a timely manner, it could cause complications with the worker's compensation insurance.
