All staff members who passed the tobacco screening test will notice a partial credit on their paycheck dated Jan. 13, 2017. Because the tobacco credit was activated in the middle of a pay period (Dec. 25, 2016, to Jan. 7, 2017), employees will receive half of the biweekly credit. For the following pay date, Jan. 27, 2017, employees will receive the full $20 or $10.50 (for represented employees). The credit will appear on the left side of your paycheck under earnings.
Those interested in taking the tobacco screening test in 2017 (new hires and those who have not previously taken a tobacco test) may visit Tobacco Testing. For more information about the tobacco screening test and smoking cessation programs, call Healthy at Hopkins at 410-955-9538.
