Open Enrollment

We are working through the logistics of open enrollment and employee education sessions should they need to be done differently this year in accordance with ongoing social distancing requirements for health and safety purposes. We are working with our Section 125 vendor, American Fidelity, on the same logistics for enrollment (sign up or sign off) on those benefits as well. American Fidelity is able to offer a self-service online enrollment option this year so there will be no face-to-face meeting with a representative for those that do not require it. Staff should expect an email shortly with information from American Fidelity.

City of Marquette Policy Manual

Administrative policies have been formatted into one single administrative manual that will be placed on the Employee Portal for easy access from any computer with internet access. Once this system is operational, employees will no longer receive paper copies of new or updated policies along with individual acknowledgement forms proving their receipt of the policy. The new administrative manual will include just one acknowledgement form going forward.
