Flexible Spending Accounts
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) allow employees to lower their taxable income. There are two types of FSAs available – Dependent Care and Health Care. The Dependent Care FSA will reimburse on a pre-tax basis for eligible day care and elder care expenses. The Health Care FSA will also reimburse for eligible and out-of-pocket medical, dental and visions expenses.
Bus and Rapid Pass Discount
The GCP participates in the Commuter Advantage Program with the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA). The cost of monthly RTA passes is subsidized by the GCP, and therefore you have the opportunity to purchase transit passes at a reduced rate. The cost of the pass is determined by the RTA and is subject to change. Passes may be purchased on a pre-tax basis through payroll deduction allowing employees the opportunity for additional savings.
The IRS is allowing employees who pay for parking to use pre-tax dollars. This means employees can save a minimum of approximately 25 percent in federal, state and social security taxes. Parking may be purchased through payroll on a pre-tax basis. This program is currently available for the U.S. Bank Building Garage.
Employee Assistant Program (EAP)
The Greater Cleveland Partnership has contracted with the Center for Families and Children to provide EASE@WORK, a voluntary, private and confidential program providing counseling and community resources for employees and family members to help identify problems and develop plans for resolution.
Paid Time Off (PTO)
The Greater Cleveland Partnership has established a Paid Time Off (PTO) policy to meet the diverse needs of our employees in a flexible approach to time off. PTO provides all full- and part-time staff members with paid time away from work that can be used for vacation, personal time, personal illness or time off to care for dependents. This PTO time is in addition to company paid holidays, jury duty pay and bereavement leave. The amount of PTO available to employees is based on their years of continuous service ranging from 16 to 26 days per year.
The Greater Cleveland Partnership observes nine holidays during the calendar year. Generally, the observed holidays include: New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
