Employers are required by law to provide certain employee benefits, such as those related to social security, unemployment contributions, and workers compensation. Decisions to offer other benefits, such as health insurance or retirement, are strictly voluntary by employers.
Cumberland University chooses to offer an extensive range of health care and life insurance benefits, retirement option, education assistance (tuition remission), and other programs and services to its faculty and staff. These benefits are subject to change without prior notice.
These benefits are provided not only to enhance the quality of the work life, but also to offer opportunities for Cumberland faculty and staff to plan for the future. The Human Resource Office is a primary resource if there are questions about the benefits discussed in this chapter. Full-time Faculty and Staff, along with their eligible dependents in some cases, are eligible for the benefits offered by Cumberland University. These benefits are subject to change without prior notice.
