The Central Community School Board maintains that salary deductions which are considered statutory, including federal income tax, state income tax, retirement, and garnishments by court orders, shall be deducted in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
Any voluntary deductions desired by employees may be authorized by the School Board, when such action is determined to be in the best interest of the school system. Said request shall be submitted in writing by the employee. The employee shall also sign a form authorizing said salary deduction and verifying knowledge of all regulations governing salary deductions. The School Board does not assume any liability for compliance with governing requirements and regulations.
The following voluntary deductions are approved by the School Board:
Membership dues in recognized professional associations. Dues
shall be deducted only upon receipt of an authorization signed by
the individual employee.
Deductions for employee contributions to the school system's hospitalization and life insurance program and any other insurance or tax-sheltered annuity programs which are or may be approved by the School Board. Future insurances offered to employees must be approved prior to being offered to employees and must have a minimum participation of thirty-five percent (35%) of the employees before payroll deductions may be granted.
All employees shall be permitted to participate in all existing payroll deduction plans.
All employees shall be responsible for enrolling and monitoring days in these plans during open enrollment. It is important that employees realize that changes can only be made during open enrollment and in the occurrence of a qualifying event. If a change is made because of a qualifying event, the change must be made within thirty (30) days.
The School Board shall only be responsible for making approved salary deductions as requested in writing by any employee of the School Board. Under no circumstances shall special arrangements be made as to the commencement or transaction of salary deductions.
