Sick Bank
The Employee Sick Bank is a voluntary short term disability program which runs with BHS’ fiscal year, July 1 – June 30.  The purpose of the sick bank is to assist employees who are unable to work for an extended period of time, as a result of their own personal illness.  It provides members with an additional 440 hours (up to 11 weeks) of PTO annually for use during their personal extended illness.  All employees who have at least 24 hours of accrued PTO may participate in the Sick Bank during annual open enrollment.  Employees may access the sick bank only if qualified for an episode of personal illness covered under FMLA, and they have taken off 5 consecutive work days for their own illness. 

Paid Time Off
BHS provides employees with 0.07 hours of Paid Time Off (PTO) per hour of work for full time and part time employees up to established maximums.  For a full time employee working 80 hours per pay, this equals out to 6.15 hours per pay, or 20 days per year.  After two years of service, the accrual goes up to 0.08 hours per hour of work, or 22 days per year for full time employees. PTO is to be used for vacation, holidays, personal days, illness or emergencies.

Credit Union
All employees of BHS have the opportunity to join the Omega Federal Credit Union.  The credit union provides many great services such as checking and savings accounts, home loans, car loans, etc.

Work Perks
BHS has partnered with many local merchants to offer its employees special discounts on many commonly-used services and products.  Participating merchants include Salon La Te Da, Stout Flooring, Life Uniform, and many more!  BHS employees also enjoy significant discounts through AT&T, Verizon Wireless, and Sprint on their cellular phone plans.

PAT Discount
Ride the Bus or Trolley to work?  BHS offers you the option of paying for your monthly bus pass through two pre-tax (saving you federal and state taxes) payroll deductions per month, rather than having to pay for your pass all at once!

Free Parking
No need to pay for an expensive garage lease - BHS provides free parking for all of its employees.
