Regular classified employees are currently covered by the Agreement between the El Camino Community College District and the ECCE, Local 6142.
Health, Life, Dental and Vision Insurance
The college provides a diversified insured benefit program for classified staff members including medical, dental, vision and life insurance. Dependent medical, dental and vision insurance is available toward which both the college and staff member contribute.
Vacation and Holidays
The college has a liberal vacation and holiday package.
Sick Leave and Disability
Paid sick leave is granted equal to one day for each month of classified service. Sick leave may be accumulated indefinitely; for each twenty-five days of unused sick leave, the employee receives one additional vacation day per year. Rather than state disability insurance, limited sick leave benefits are available for those days beyond the earned sick leave days to be paid at fifty percent.
Classified staff members contribute a percentage of their monthly salary to the Public Employees Retirement system (PERS) and to Social Security. Upon termination, PERS retirement contributions may be withdrawn in full, plus accumulated interest.
Schedule of Salary Increases
Scheduled salary increases are based on service in the position and are granted the first day of the month following six, eighteen, thirty and forty-two months.
