New employee enrollment
Most of IU's benefit plans require new employees to enroll within 30 days of becoming benefits eligible. Visit the new employee benefit enrollment site to learn about the available benefits and use HR's step-by-step guide to aide with enrollment.

IU healthcare benefit website
Find out everything you need to know about your IU-sponsored benefit plans by visiting the IU healthcare benefits site, where you can read plan descriptions, access vendor websites, handle changes in your enrollment status, and more.

Indiana University has partnered with Castlight to help employees and their adult family members find in-network medical services or prescription drugs based on price and quality of care. Castlight also offers a step-by-step review of past medical expenses for both medical services and prescriptions, so members know how much they paid and why.

Please note that employees who may use Castlight must be enrolled in IU-sponsored PPO medical plans.

Corrective action

As a supervisor, you may be required to correct issues with employees at times. University HR provides a corrective action document that offers relevant information for making and implementing sound decisions regarding performance improvement and progressive discipline. UITS Human Resources should be consulted on any formal progressive discipline process.

IU tuition benefit

Indiana University’s tuition benefit supports IU's educational mission by reducing the cost of IU courses for full-time employees and their spouses, domestic partners, and dependents.

Eligible individuals are provided a subsidy toward the tuition costs associated with attending IU classes or a tuition waiver in the case of Indiana University High School (IUHS) courses.

Retirement benefits

It's never too early to start saving for retirement. Visit IU's retirement readiness page to learn more about the different tools that employees can use to save and plan for effective retirements.

Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

Under the federal FMLA, employees may take an extended leave of absence from work for a number of qualifying reasons, including:

  • Serious health condition for immediate family
  • Serious personal health condition
  • Birth of a new child
  • Adoption or foster care
  • Military leave 

Employees should request FMLA leave as soon as they're aware of their need by filling out and submitting the leave request form to UITS Human Resources or faxing it to (812) 855-3409. Additional forms or certification from a health provider may be requested. Eligibility and  potential return dates will then be determined before employees are granted leave.

University HR provides a full list of FMLA procedure guidelines for your information.
