Each year the Colleges are required by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) to file an Annual Return/Report of Employee Benefit Plan, Form 5500 with the federal government for relevant benefit plans. Once the Colleges have filed the 5500s with the federal government, we are then required to communicate that fact to you in the form of a Summary Annual Report.
In addition to these reports, we have attached several communiqués on varying topics that the federal government requires us to distribute periodically. The individual topics include the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, a copy of the Colleges’ Drug Free Workplace Policy, a copy of the Colleges’ Family and Medical Leave Policy, a copy of the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) Privacy Notice, and a notification of continuation of benefit coverage rights under COBRA (Consolidated Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1985).
You have the right to receive paper copies of any or all of the attached documents free of charge upon request. Please call Human Resources for the copies or if you have any questions at ext. 3312 or e-mail Tabatha Spinner.
