Supplemental Insurance and Leave

While enrollment (or decline) of these benefits will be initiated in Workday for new hires, here is information on all of our supplemental benefit plans. Schedule a Benefits Info Session with LSU AgCenter HRM before making new hire elections (main office: 225.578.2258) - they're usually held each Wednesday from 9 - 11am.

Insurance coverage will begin on the first of the month - AFTER you have worked one, full calendar month. Restrictions on enrollment/cancellation are listed with the description of each plan.

Dental insurance may be elected within the first 30 days of new hire or during annual enrollment. Mid-year addition or cancellation of coverage will have to be within 30 days of a Qualifying Life Event.

Eligibility
Eligible employees receive several types of time off, which are defined below. The type of appointment on which the individual is employed determines eligibility for the types of time off available.

Academic and unclassified employees on regular appointments of greater than 180 days and greater than 50% effort are eligible for all types of time off. Academic and unclassified employees on temporary appointments of less than 181 days or on appointments for 50% effort or less are not eligible for annual and sick time off, but are eligible for civil, funeral and military time off. Academic and unclassified employees must make a leave election with this form: Annual Leave Accrual Election Form

Classified employees on regular appointments are eligible for all types of time off. Classified employees serving on restricted appointments do not earn any type of time off. Accrual methods of both annual and sick time off are determined by the employee’s type of appointment.

Annual Time Off
Annual time off is time off with pay granted employees for vacation and transaction of personal affairs. Annual time off may be used at any time after it is earned contingent upon approval and supervisory personnel. Annual time off is credited at the end of the pay period and cannot be advanced to employees.

Eligible academic and non‐classified employees may choose to accumulate (accrue) their annual time off under either the LSU Schedule (Schedule 2) or the Civil Service Schedule (Schedule 1). An employee on an academic year basis (9 month appointment) does not accrue annual time off, but does accrue sick time off. New employees must select one of the schedules within 30 days of their date of employment. The decision made is irrevocable.
