Retirement Plan

  • Employee Stock Option Plan – "ESOP" Becoming an owner of The Burnett Companies "Company" does not cost you anything. An ESOP is a retirement plan under ERISA laws and is similar to a 401K plan. It is designed to help provide you with a retirement income. You become eligible to participate in the ESOP after you have worked 1,000 in your anniversary year, which is a 12 month period from your first day of work or any anniversary year thereafter. To be eligible to receive stock, you must work 1000 or more hours in a plan year and be employed at the end of the plan year. For our staffing employees, when you are on an assignment after October 1st, you are assumed to be employed at the end of the plan year, which is the last Saturday in December unless you have accepted a permanent position or you have been terminated from the company. You become vested in your stock after you have been in the plan for three years. Participating Employees in the ESOP receive an annual statement of their account. This statement is mailed in May or June of each year. To view the Summary Plan Description of the plan and your account, click here. The Summary Plan Description provides information about the Plan and the distribution of the value of your vested shares upon your termination from the Company.
