Job Benefits/Staff Personnel

  • Health Insurance

    The health insurance is a High Deductible Health Plan in conjunction with a Health Savings Account (HSA). The Company pays 90% of the insurance premiums, and employees are responsible for the other 10%. Employees are encouraged to fund the amount of their annual deductible to their HSA through pre-tax payroll deductions. Any unused funds can be used to offset future years’ medical costs or to build towards a medical retirement account with pre-tax dollars.

    The current annual deductible is $1,500 per year for individuals and $3,000 per year for family coverage. Once the deductible is met, employees are responsible for paying a 20% coinsurance until the out-of-pocket maximum is met. The out-of-pocket maximum is $4,000 for individuals and $8000 for families.  This plan is subject to revision on an annual renewal basis.

  • Dental & Vision Insurance

    Dental and vision insurance premiums are shared expenses between the employee and the company with 80% of the premium paid by Saunders Construction.

  • Employee Assistance Program

    An EAP is a solution-focused program for personal and professional issues. The EAP assists organizations in addressing productivity issues, helps employees identify and resolve personal concerns, and enables employers and employees to take a pro-active approach in managing wellness.

  • Section 125 Plan

    This is an employer-sponsored benefit plan, which allows an employee to select from a list of available benefits — benefits specifically needed by the employee. This program means that current after-tax expenditures for items such as insurance premiums, dependent care costs, and some vision and dental expenses not covered by insurance, can now be paid for with pre-tax dollars. The bottom line is that employees may have increased take-home pay or more dollars available to purchase other benefits they may need.

  • 401(K) Retirement Plan

    Following a six-month eligibility period, all newly eligible employees will be automatically enrolled in the 401(K) Retirement Plan and set up to make contributions of 6% of their base salary. Eligible employees will also receive a Safe Harbor contribution from the Company in the amount of 3% of their base salary. The Company will match 100% of your combined elective deferral to a maximum of 2%. We also offer a Roth 401(k) which allows employees to contribute funds on a post-tax elective deferral basis in addition to or instead of pre-tax elective deferrals.

  • Paid Time Off

    Saunders Construction offers a generous paid time off program. Employees are eligible for 15 days of vacation during the first year of employment; 19 days of vacation annually in years 2–4; 23 days annually in years 5–9 and 28 days after 10 years.

  • Holiday

    Saunders Construction offers seven paid holidays throughout the year.

  • Parental Leave

    Employees are eligible for parental leave after having worked for the company for at least 12 months. Primary caregivers may receive 13 weeks of 100% paid parental leave when welcoming a child through birth, adoption or foster care. Secondary caregivers may take a two-week paid parental leave within the first 13 weeks when welcoming a child through birth, adoption or foster care.

  • Bonus Program

    Contingent upon the profitability for the year and after consideration for the long-term viability of the company, a percentage of the profit may be made available to pay employees a merit bonus.

  • Life Insurance, Short Term Disability Insurance and Long Term Disability Insurance

    Saunders Construction provides life insurance, STD, and LTD insurance on behalf of its employees. The life insurance will provide a lump-sum payment to the employee’s designated beneficiaries. Short-term disability coverage replaces a portion of lost income for a specified period of time for employees who are ill or have non-work-related injuries. The long-term disability insurance replaces a portion of the employee’s lost income after short-term disability coverage ends.

    *All benefits listed above are for non-signatory, full-time personnel.

  • What Else Should I Know?

    Other benefits include service awards, a sabbatical leave, tuition assistance, a wellness program, and casual dress code.
