NWLC is committed to providing staff with a rich and comprehensive benefits package including:
Medical, Dental, and Vision Insurance
Employees who work at least 20 hours/week and their legal spouses, domestic partners, and dependent children are all eligible for our medical and dental coverage. Our medical insurance includes virtual visits, mental health services, and more. We also offer voluntary vision coverage. NWLC covers the cost of dental insurance at 100%.
403(b) Retirement Benefits
All full-time and part-time employees are eligible for a 403(b)-retirement plan. Employees are immediately eligible to make voluntary contributions to the plan up to the IRS maximum. On the first of the month, following three months of employment, NWLC will contribute 3% of an employee’s compensation to the employee’s account. These contributions are vested immediately. Based on an employee’s years of service, NWLC will increase the contribution to maximum amount of 6%.
NWLC provides annual leave accrued on a calendar year basis, starting with an accrual amount of annual leave up to 20 days and sick leave accrual up to 10 days in the first year. We also offer partially paid family and medical leave.
NWLC recognizes all federal holidays including New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, President’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Indigenous’ People’s Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving (with a half day before, and a full day after) and Christmas. We also provide one “floating holiday” which employees can take at any point during the year.
Teleworking and Flexible Working Hours
Staff have flexibility regarding when they start and end their day to accommodate care responsibilities, commuting, and other personal matters. Additionally, employees may arrange to work remotely one day a week with the additional option of limited ad hoc teleworking.
Cell Phone Reimbursement
Acknowledging that cell phones are frequently used for work-related purposes, NWLC adds $50 per month to all benefits-eligible employees’ paychecks.
NWLC offers in-house professional development activities for staff to meet organization-wide goals as well as funds for external training opportunities.
Additional benefits include NWLC paid life, accidental death and dismemberment, and long-term disability insurance for all employees. We also offer a pre-tax metro/qualified parking and flexible spending account for employees to use for out-of-pocket health care and dependent care. All NWLC staff have access to a state-of-the-art gym and locker room on site for no additional cost
