What did they offer to sweeten the pot Kev.
My wife signed up for 3 months. My understanding is she would receive 25 percent pay and that the company would not contest unemployment claims. Did they offer something further?
If you take a leave, they are now covering any premiums for any of your health benefits (medical, dental, vision, Life insurance(s), and LTD & STD). Previously, they were only going to pause your premiums, with the employee having to catch those up when they came back on the property.
STD and LTD coverage will now stay in effect, even with the longer length leaves.
People taking leave will still accrue Paid Personal Time (what we use for sick days or Day-at-a-time vacation days).
All time away will still count towards any FMLA eligibilty.
