Char-Em ISD employee / former employee info
re: 3% health care deduction reimbursement

Jan. 8, 2018 - In late December 2017, the Michigan Supreme Court ruled that health care deductions withheld from public school employees between July 1, 2010 and Sept. 3, 2012, were unconstitutional. In the decision, the justices agreed that a 2010 Michigan law violated contract clauses of the state and federal constitutions by involuntarily reducing pay for teachers and other school employees by 3 percent to fund retiree health care benefits.

The Office of Retirement Services (ORS) will be refunding the $550 million plus interest back to the districts from which the original 3% percent was withheld. It is up to the individual districts to pay these amounts back to affected employees current and past.

FORMER EMPLOYEES ONLY: Char-Em ISD Business Office will strive to verify direct deposit information for former employees on file to ensure payments are deposited into the correct bank account. Please verify your payroll direct deposit information with our Human Resources Department at (231) 547-9947 or email hrclerk@charemisd.org. Char-Em ISD needs current bank information, mailing address, email and phone number. This information is requested no later than Thursday, January 18, 2018 to ensure you will receive payment scheduled to be released by the end of January.
