Duplicate Referrals

If duplicate referrals occur, the first referral received will be eligible for payment. If a joint referral is made (and received at the same time), the Referral Bonus will be split evenly between the referring staff.

Selection Procedures

The employment application will be reviewed through the normal hiring procedures. The appropriate employment staff member will review the application. If the applicant meets the specified qualifications for the position, the application will be referred to the hiring department for review and evaluation. The hiring manager will make the selection decision for the position. All information regarding the reason(s) for making a decision not to hire an applicant will remain strictly confidential. Applicants must successfully complete all aspects of the pre-employment process.

Position Changes

If a referred employee changes to another position that is full time and still one of the qualifying jobs codes, the referrer will remain eligible for the future installments of the Referral Bonus. If a referred employee leaves through termination or resignation, or drop below the defined Full Time status (64 hours bi-weekly), the referring employee shall not be eligible for the remainder of the referral bonus.

Payment Procedures

If the referred applicant accepts employment with Baptist and is hired into a priority recruitment position, the referring employee will receive a referral bonus in two equal increments. The initial bonus payment is made when the referred new-hire has completed his/her initial 90-day introductory period in the approved full- or part-time priority recruitment position. A second and final bonus payment is made after the new hire works 6 months in the same position and status. Employees making successful hiring referrals receive the following referral bonus amounts:

  • If the referred person is hired into a full-time priority recruitment position working 64 to 80 scheduled hours bi-weekly, the referring employee will receive $500 (less applicable tax withholding) after the new hire's initial 90-day introductory period and after 6 months.
  • If the referred person is hired into a part-time priority recruitment position working 48 to 63 scheduled hours bi-weekly, the referring employee will receive $250 (less applicable tax withholding) after the new hire's initial 90-day introductory period and after 6 months.
