Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

Can I review my own personnel file?

Any employee can review his/her own personnel file. If you are interested in doing so, please contact HR.

If I get married or have a baby, how do I add my new spouse or baby to my insurance? I've heard there is a specific period that I need to do this by or they may not be eligible. Is this true?

Both of these events, marriage and the birth of a child, are considered "Qualifying Events” that allow employees to make benefit election changes at the time of the event and outside of the Open Enrollment period. Other types of events that would also constitute a "Qualifying Events” include marriage, adoption of a child, divorce, and legal separation. The IRS regulations regarding pre-tax premium plans to not allow for enrollment, additions, changes or cancellations except with the occurrence of a "Qualifying Events", followed by written application for a change within the timeframe. The forms required to make any changes or adjustments must be received by Human Resources within 31 days from the "Qualifying Events”. If the 31 days expires, employees will have to wait until the next open enrollment period to make any changes to their benefit plans. For more information, please feel free to contact the Human Resources.

What if my home address or telephone number changes. What should I do?

You can update your personal information such as home address, telephone number, directly online, using ECWeb. However, if you do not have regular access to a computer or the Self Service functionality, you may stop by Human Resources to complete the necessary form to make the changes or request the form via campus mail.

How might I find out how many days of paid leave I have available?

Employees can obtain their leave balances logging onto the ECWeb, viewing their pay stub, or contacting Human Resources.
