Benefits Eligibility

Welcome to Flagger Force! If you are curious about when you will be eligible for our benefits packages, you've come to the right place. Firstly, you need to be an active full-time employee working 30 or more hours per week.

Next, we need to explain when coverage for full-time staff begins. Flagger Force FIELD staff are classified as variable-hour employees. To be considered full-time and benefit-eligible, an employee must average 30 or more hours worked per week, measured over a six (6) month period. Measurement starts on the 1st of the month following your date of hire and is measured for the next 6 months. The next month is an administrative period for the benefits team, and then you may be offered to enroll in benefits on the 1st of the next month. Notification of eligibility and enrollment information will be sent to your primary email address on file. Be sure to check your spam/junk folders, too!

In other words, check the table below to find out your benefits eligibility start date. Find your hire date and then move left to right to track your benefits eligibility start date.
