Contribution Rate Changes Under Chapter 78, P.L. 2011


Full-Time employees are issued an allotment of paid time off (sick and personal days) at the start of employment and/or the start of each school year.  In the case of employment that terminates for any reason on a date other than the last day of the school year, any sick and personal days issued for the current year will be prorated based on the first and last day of employment of that school year.  This will not impact any previous years' accumulated paid time off. Employees who are eligible for unused sick time will be paid once the retirement is approved by the Division of Pensions & Benefits. Maximum payout per negotiated agreement= $15,000

A live paper check will be issued for the last contractual pay for any employment that terminates with the district for any reason. Employees should verify that Human Resources has current contact information (email, address & phone). Employee attendance and health benefit contributions will be reviewed to determine any outstanding balance due the district if applicable.
