Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

The Family and Medical Leave Act provides employees with unpaid leave for the following reasons:

  • Parental responsibilities, including birth, adoption or placement for adoption
  • Serious health condition of the employee,
  • Serious health condition of a spouse, son, daughter, or parent,
  • Qualifying exigency of a son, daughter, spouse, parent, or next of kin, or
  • Care of a covered servicemember with a serious injury or illness.

In addition, District 33 provides that employees may use accumulated sick leave for some or all of their FMLA leave. Employees are encouraged to review their union contracts and the documents below for more information. If you are going to access FMLA leave, please contact the Office of Human Resources as soon as possible to make arrangements.

Announcement Regarding Health Savings Accounts (HSAs):

The Board of Education voted to continue seeding HSA accounts for 2019 in the following amounts:

  • Single @ $675.00 / year, paid in monthly increments
  • Family @ $1350.00 / year, paid in monthly increments

Seeding will be for 2 years only. Employees who have participated in the HSA plan for 2 or more years already will not receive additional seeding for 2019 or beyond.

Annual Notification - Medicare Part D

The District 33 prescription benefit is considered “creditable," which means that the group health prescription drug benefit is as good as, if not better than, any Medicare Part D Prescription Drug benefit.  The reason for the notification is to give Medicare beneficiaries the option to elect a Medicare Part D Prescription Drug benefit, should they choose. Most Medicare beneficiaries decide not to, if they are already on a creditable plan, but if you leave your employment in District 33 you will need this notice to show proof to your next plan that you previously had creditable coverage.
