EES understands that everyone's medical needs are different and offers a choice between two-tiers of Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) Plans allowing employees to better manage their costs.
Participants in the group medical plan are eligible for the prescription drug program administered through our health insurance provider. A mail order program is also available that provides substantial savings to employees.
Employees and their eligible dependents may elect to enroll in the EES, LLC Dental Plan. Employees have the opportunity to maximize dental benefits by selecting providers within the preferred network. Orthodontic benefits are also included. This plan provides a great deal of flexibility as it allows you to use the dentist of your choice. Like all dental plans, claims under this plan are subject to reasonable and customary limitations.
Vision insurance is offered through a third-party vision care provider. Doctors within the plan provide a variety of discounted benefits including eye exams, frames, lenses and products.
A flexible spending account allows the employee to direct a part of his/her pay, on a pretax basis, into a special account that can be used throughout the year to pay for certain out-of-pocket health and/or dependent care expenses.
The Employee Assistance Program provides short-term counseling for employees and their eligible family members to assist with personal, job, or family issues.
EES offers employees company-paid short-term and long term disability insurance, which provides for employee salary continuation in the event of an illness, accident or hospitalization.
EES offers company-provided life insurance and accidental death and dismemberment insurance for regular, full-time employees.
This voluntary life insurance program allows employees to purchase additional life insurance for themselves, spouses, and dependent children.
Eligible employees may also participate in the EES, LLC 401(k) Plan. Employees may contribute a percentage of their pre-tax pay, subject to annual IRS-set maximums, to be invested in a wide variety of investment options. A generous company match is also provided to plan participants. Under certain conditions, employees can arrange loans and hardship distributions from their 401(k) account. In addition, new employees may rollover existing funds from other qualified plans as soon as they have made one payroll contribution to the plan.
To assist in maintaining a positive work/life balance, active employees will accrue universal leave to be used for vacations, sick time or personal time off. Actual accrual rates are determined by length of service with the company.
EES observes ten (10) paid federal holidays each year: New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Jr.'s Birthday, President's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans' Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
