Now that we are represented by a LMP union, full-time and part-time Pharmacists are eligible to use the employer’s tuition reimbursement program for non-college credit courses.
Those courses, workshops, seminars, professional conferences, educational meetings, and special events taken or attended for continuing education and/or to obtain or maintain licensure, degrees and certification are eligible for tuition reimbursement. They must be provided by an accredited institution, professional society, or government agency for continuing education and/or to obtain or maintain licensure, degrees and certification. Educational opportunities may include basic skills programs, e.g., computer, basic math, second language and medical terminology courses. Membership fees for professional organizations are not eligible for reimbursement.
Reimbursement up to $2,000 is offered during the 2015 calendar year.
- $2,000 available to employees scheduled 40 hours
- $1,500 available to employees scheduled 32 to 39 hours
- $1,000 available to employees scheduled 20 to 31 hours.
Starting in 2016, LMP union employees are eligible for tuition reimbursement up to $3,000 annually, where up to $500 of the annual amount may be used for travel and lodging costs.
It is important to note that the company has not modified MyHR to allow you to directly download and submit the necessary forms for reimbursement. If you want to apply for CE reimbursement this year, you should directly contact Tuition Reimbursement Administration at 866-480-4480.
