Contracted Employees - Living Wage - B 305

The college "living wage" policy expresses the intent of the Board that individuals employed through contractual agreements to provide certain services to the college receive a total hourly compensation (hourly wages plus hourly benefits package cost) which is not less than the federal poverty guideline for a family unit of four.

This policy shall apply to employees of contractors engaged by the college to provide custodial and public safety patrols at facilities wholly owned by the college. This policy does not apply to individuals employed by the contractor or the college through a Qualified Rehabilitation Facility, or on a temporary or substitute basis. The policy does not apply to individual employees of an otherwise covered contractor who are in a benefits eligibility waiting period.

The College President shall develop and maintain procedures to implement this policy.
