Policy In Case of Employee Death
The College will extend the following benefits to the dependents or beneficiaries, as appropriate, of eligible employees who die while in active service with the College or while receiving medical leave payments from the College under the Extended Medical Leave Plan:
Definition of Eligibility
For purposes of this policy, "eligible employees" are defined as all full-time and regular part-time employees who have completed one year of service in an eligible category. "Active service" is defined as any period when an employee is on the College payroll. An employee who has been removed from the College payroll for the summer months or an employee who is on an unpaid leave of absence other than for disability is not covered by this policy.
Continuation of Payments or Salary
If death occurs while the employee is receiving medical leave payments from the College, payment will be continued for the remaining months of the medical leave, up to the maximum of six months. If death occurs while the employee is in active service with the College, regular salary will be continued for six months. These payments will be made to the deceased employee's estate or to a designated beneficiary if so designated before death.
Continuation of Health Insurance
Throughout the period of medical leave payment, the employee's dependent health insurance will be continued under the same financial arrangements as prior to the death of the employee under the terms and conditions of the health insurance plans and policies. Upon the termination of medical leave or salary, continuation of health insurance will be in accordance with the College health insurance plans and policies.
If an employee dies while on leave due to disability, continuation of health insurance will be in accordance with the College health insurance plans and policies.
