Payroll deduction is required for ALL UK employees and their spouses/sponsored dependents.
Retirees and retiree spouses will continue to pay by check or cash. Click here for retiree enrollment form.
Fees for a spouse or sponsored dependent will be deducted from the UK employee’s paycheck. In other words, if your husband is a Body Shop member but does not work at UK, his fees will come out of your (UK employee) paycheck.
Once you’re signed up for payroll deduction, all you need to do is register for Group Fitness Classes, if you choose to participate.
The fee for Body Shop Fitness is $7 per month or $3.50 per biweekly period.
Fees will be deducted from member paychecks on an after-tax basis at either $7 per month or $3.50 per biweekly period. For bi-weekly employees: In the months that have three pay periods, fees will only be deducted from the first two checks. Body Shop fees will coincide with regular payroll schedule.
Your pay stub will show "Body Shop Fitness" ($7 or $3.50) if you are enrolled in Body Shop only. If you choose to join the Johnson Center as a combination, your check will show two lines: 1. "Body Shop Fitness Combo" ($5 or $2.50) and 2. "Johnson Center Combo" ($15 or $7.50).
There are a few other changes coinciding with payroll deduction. For one, we will no longer base our schedule on semesters, which will allow more flexibility. However, all Mind/Body classes will be FREE for Body Shop members. In addition, there will be a three-month minimum membership requirement for all members.
Yes! Body Shop Members can also take advantage of this opportunity to join both the Johnson Center and Body Shop Fitness for only $20 per month through payroll deduction. This reflects a 30% discount versus regular fees. Johnson Center membership requirements apply. Contact the Johnson Center at (859) 257-3928, for more information.
