|SUBJECT:||VALUE OF BENEFITS WHEN PUBLISHING SALARIES: UPDATE OF CURRENT RATES|
Maine law requires that a statement of the dollar value of the fringe benefits package provided by the State must be placed in all advertisements that state the salary of a position. This includes all advertisements or other publications that agencies may develop to fill "direct hire" vacancies.
Effective 1 July 2001, the values of benefits are listed below. All previous HR Memoranda pertaining to the dollar value of benefits are superseded to reflect recent changes in health/dental insurance and/or retirement rates.
STATE PAID HEALTH AND DENTAL INSURANCE (ALL POSITIONS): $ 211.26 BI-WEEKLY (US1G Health $200.99 / Dental $10.27)
VALUE OF STATE SHARE OF EMPLOYEE RETIREMENT CONTRIBUTIONS FOR:
ALL RATES ARE FOR EMPLOYEES HIRED UNDER CURRENT RECRUITMENTS. HEALTH AND DENTAL INSURANCE RATES FOR PART-TIME POSITIONS SHOULD BE PRORATED BASED ON THE FIGURES CITED ABOVE.
Please take immediate steps to ensure that the proper statement for the value of employee benefits is placed in all publications that include employee or position salaries. HR representatives should contact Phil Schlegel (624-7369) or Thaddeus Cotnoir (624-7799) with questions or comments.
