Employee Eligibility

McClatchy is proud to offer employees a wide variety of flexible benefit offerings. Please see what benefits you are eligible for below.

Generally, employees are eligible for all benefits under McClatchy's benefit plans if you're scheduled to regularly work a minimum of 30 hours per week or more. You may also enroll eligible dependents in certain benefits. More information on covering your family members can be found here.

Each year prior to open enrollment, the company will review the total regular hours worked during a 12 month period to identify all employees who have worked a minimum of 1560 hours in the previous 12 month period (typically October to October). Employees who meet the hour's threshold will be notified of their eligibility for benefits and be allowed to elect benefits for the following year.

All employees, regardless of standard hours receive access to EAP benefits and are eligible to enroll in pet insurance at any time.

Benefits for regular benefit-eligible employees kick in on the 1st of the month following 30 days from the date of hire. For example, if you start on October 3, 30 days later would be November 3, which means your benefits would kick in December 1.

Benefit for temporary benefit-eligible employees will kick in the 1st of the month following 60 days from the date of hire. For example, if your start date was October 3, 60 days later would be December 3 which means your benefits would kick in January 1.

We strongly recommend you enroll in benefits even if you don't anticipate being employed for more than 60 days. Mainly because if you say no to benefits now you will not be allowed to enroll later unless of course, you experience a qualifying life event or during Open Enrollment. More information on qualifying life events can be found on our What to do when… page
