Listed below is a brief overview of the benefits available to you as a full-time faculty member at Greenfield Community College.
Dental insurance (MetLife) is available to you and any dependents at no cost to you. Coverage becomes effective six (6) full months after hire.
Sick and personal leave
Faculty members earn sick leave upon hire. Sick leave is based on a total of ten (10) days per year. Your first paycheck advice will list the amount of leave time that you have accrued. There is no cap on the amount of sick leave an employee may carry. Sick leave credits can be paid off only at the time of retirement. This payout is at 20% of accumulated sick leave credits. Effective with your date of hire you have one (1) personal day that must be used by December 31. Personal days cannot be carried over from one calendar year to another. On January 1 of each following year you will receive two (2) Personal Days.
Tuition remission is available to you and any dependents at any Massachusetts college or university. Tuition only is waived; fees are not waived unless your spouse or dependent is attending a community college, and then a 50% fee waiver may apply. (Please refer to the System-wide Tuition Remission Policy for MCCC members in the Policies section of this website.)
