Employee Related Expense (ERE) are the expenses the University is responsible for as an employer. ERE is comprised of FICA, Retirement, Unemployment Compensation, Worker's Compensation, Liability Insurance, Health/Dental/Life Insurance, and Dependent Care Assistance.
ERE Rates must be approved by the Federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). An ERE cost analysis is prepared each January by Financial Management and a rate proposal is submitted to the HHS for approval. Between February and June, HHS reviews the proposal and, if approved, signs the ERE Rate Agreement. The University will receive a signed agreement by June or July.
