freelance benefits
As a freelancer, it’s not just about finding great work. Security and benefits are equally important. So, in addition to our sparkling personalities, here is what you’ll get when you work with Communications Collaborative.

Health Insurance Benefits (HMO) (PPO) (Dental)

Communications Collaborative is in full compliance with the Affordable Care Act and provides healthcare plans that meet Minimum Credible Coverage Standards.

After working 90 consecutive days while maintaining a 30-hour workweek, you are eligible to join one of our health insurance plans. We offer two HCCS plans (HMO, PPO): the Blue Cross Blue Shield HMO Blue New England $1,000 Deductible Plan and the Blue Cross Blue Shield Preferred Blue PPO $2,000 Deductible Plan. Communications Collaborative will subsidize 50% of the individual premium and 33% of the family premium for these plans. If you are laid off while participating, you are eligible to receive COBRA benefits through Communications Collaborative as well.

Starting October 2015, Communications Collaborative will offer dental insurance through Sun Life Insurance. There is no company subsidy for dental insurance – employees will be responsible for paying the full premium for dental insurance.

401(k)

We offer Unified Trust 401(k), after one year of service and 1,000 hours working with us. And for those contributing 5% or more, we offer a discretionary bonus based on company performance.

Sick time

As of July 1, 2015 all employees in Massachusetts begin to accrue (earn) sick leave that may be used for authorized purposes. The law entitles employees in Massachusetts to earn and use up to 40 hours of sick time per year. Communications Collaborative employees will accrue sick time at a rate of no less than one hour for every 30 hours worked.
