Additional Benefits

Along with generous health and retirement benefits, Fisher offers a number of additional benefits including tuition assistance, an employee assistance plan, worker's compensation, and more.

Employee Assistance Plan (EAP)

Fisher offers an Employee Assistance Program [pdf] to all its employees. The program provides free, confidential, and professional assistance to help employees and their families resolve problems that affect their personal lives or job performance. These problems may include alcohol or drug abuse, marital difficulties, financial or legal problems, emotional difficulties, or parent/child issues.

EAP Contact Info

Phone: (585) 276-9110

Workers’ Compensation

If you incur an accident, injury, and/or illness while working on campus, immediately notify your supervisor/manager and the Office of Safety and Security. You must also complete an internal Accident Report Form [pdf] as soon as possible following the incident. This formed must be signed by both you and your supervisor and forwarded to the Human Resources Department.

The contact information for the University's workers' compensation insurance carrier is:

The PMA Insurance Group

ID#: W662092
5789 Widewaters Parkway
Dewitt, NY 13214

Medical providers associated with your on-the-job accident, injury, or illness will need this information in order to properly bill for expenses incurred.

For additional information on medical cost reimbursement and wage replacement benefit as a result of the on-the-job accident or injury, please consult the Employee Handbook [pdf], page E12.

Domestic Partner Coverage

Fisher offers domestic partner coverage for health and dental plans only. Under this policy, a full-time employee may enroll his/her domestic partner and their partner's dependent children in a University-sponsored health and/or dental insurance plan. When an employee enrolls a domestic partner in a University-sponsored insurance plan, the employee does not benefit from the same pre-tax benefits that married employees do. More detailed information on this plan and its tax implications can be found below.

Employee Meal Plan

Fisher Dining Services now offers a 30-swipe meal plan for Fisher employees. You may use the swipes for entry into the all-you-care-to-eat Ward-Haffey Dining Hall or in Sono or Murphy Sub Shoppe as a meal exchange (one swipe for a bundled meal deal). In the Employee 30 plan, meal swipes roll over from year to year as long as the holder is employed at the University.
