PURPOSE / SCOPE:
It is the intent of ICOM to clarify the definitions of employment classifications so that employees understand their employment status and benefits eligibility.
POLICY AND PROCEDURE:

- Regular Full-Time Employees are employees regularly scheduled for 20 hours or more each week and are eligible for ICOM’s benefits package, subject to the terms, conditions, and limitations of each program.
