Important Notice: Change in Employee Health Club Deductions

Albemarle County LogoA message from Susan Worrell, Chief Accountant, County of Albemarle (Apr. 12, 2018)

Over the years, we have been asked by employees and by various health clubs to offer payroll deduction for monthly membership fees. While the County of Albemarle encourages employees to participate in wellness programs, it has been limited in its ability to offer payroll deduction of membership fees to multiple health clubs because it is/was a manual process. By standardizing this process and by utilizing the Greenshades Employee Self-Serve portal, the County will automate this process and will expand the offering of payroll deduction to additional health clubs who meet certain membership requirements. (Please see the Health Club Payroll Deduction FAQs.)

Description of Change: Beginning May 1, 2018, Payroll deduction elections for ACAC health club memberships will be initiated and maintained by the employee through Greenshades vs. a paper authorization form submitted to the Payroll Division from ACAC.  Additionally, the Brooks Family YMCA will join the County’s roster for payroll deduction elections starting on May 1, 2018. Employees will have until May 20, 2018 to enroll for the May 31, 2018 paycheck.

Objective of Change: This change will allow Payroll to expand participation to additional health clubs.

Current deductions for ACAC will be deactivated on May 1, 2018, and employees will be required to log in to their Greenshades account and enroll in the appropriate membership plan.

If you have any questions after reviewing the documentation below, please feel free to contact Payroll (email, phone 434-296-5857) regarding your deduction or for help with Greenshades.
