On January 1 of each year, all full-time employees are credited with 24 hours of paid personal time to be used for such things as appointments, family events, and unforeseen emergencies. New full-time employees begin accruing pro-rated personal leave based on their hire dates.


All full-time employees receive 14 paid holidays (8-hour days) each year.

A group health plan is available to full-time employees at a minimal cost for employee coverage. Dependent insurance for health and dental is available, and the employee is responsible for the entire premium.


MRI provides a qualified, defined matching contribution retirement savings plan for all qualified employees. Employees may have a voluntary pre-tax payroll deduction invested in an agency-designated 403(b) plan (TDSA) to supplement MRI’s matching contribution of 2%-6% per paycheck.

An Employee Assistance Program is available to all MRI full-time, part-time, and temporary employees and their families. These confidential services are designed and made available to assist employees in resolving personal and family problems that may be affecting their welfare and job performance.

Employees can take advantage of direct deposit to their own bank account or be paid by check every other week.

Salary continuation plans are provided to eligible employees for situations requiring them to be away from work for things such as illness (including maternity/paternity), bereavement, jury duty, and military leave.

Sick Leave

Full-time employees accrue six hours of sick leave time each month.

Part-time employees who are scheduled to work at least 20 hours per week accrue three hours (3) of sick leave each month. Part-time employees who are regularly scheduled to work a minimum of ten (10) hours per week shall accrue two (2) hours of a pay continuation.
