Employee Basic Life Insurance/Accidental Death & Dismemberment

The Company provides eligible employees with Life Insurance and Accidental Death & Dismemberment plans equal to their Eligible Benefit Earnings.

Voluntary Life Insurance Plans

Eligible employees may purchase additional life insurance coverage for themselves and for their spouse and children.

Voluntary Accidental Death & Dismemberment

Eligible employees have the option of purchasing a Voluntary Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) policy separate from the Voluntary Life Insurance Plans. The Voluntary AD&D plan can be elected for the employee, and for their spouse and children.

Employee Assistance Program

401(k) Plan

Employees can take charge of their financial future by participating in our 401(k) Plan, offered by John Hancock Retirement Plan Services. The Plan has flexibility in investment and contribution options.

Vacation Plan

We recognize the importance and necessity of time for the purposes of leisure, recreation, relaxation, and personal obligations.  Accordingly, our vacation plan offers a program for eligible employees to use for vacation as well as for personal time off. 

Employees accrue two weeks of vacation per year. The number of weeks of vacation accrual will increase as employees reach anniversary milestones. After completion of anniversary milestones, eligible employees are awarded a bonus week of additional vacation benefits.


Each calendar year, we strive to create a generous holiday schedule in appreciation of our dedicated employees. Adjustments to the holiday calendar are made each year in an effort to maintain the spirit and balance of our program with past years.

Sick Pay

Employees may use paid sick leave for diagnosis, care or treatment of an existing health condition or preventive care for themselves or a qualified family member.
