Short Term Disability (STD) Benefits
All benefit-eligible employees with three or more months of service are covered by the Short-Term Disability plan. This plan provides salary replacement should you be unable to work due to injury or illness, including pregnancy. Benefits received under this plan will be offset by benefits you receive, or are entitled to receive, under any state or federal compulsory benefit act or law, such as state disability, workers’ compensation and Social Security. Depending on your length of service, you may qualify to receive greater than 60% of your base weekly salary.
|Length of Service||100%* Salary Continuation||60%* Salary Continuation
|3 Months to 1 Year||n/a||Up to 12 weeks
|Over 1 year||Up to 4 weeks||Up to 8 additional weeks
* State Disability Insurance (where applicable) or Workers' Compensation payments will offset all STD payments.
Paid Family Leave
The Company will provide salary continuation for up to two weeks for full-time benefit eligible employees with more than a year of service who take family leave to bond with and care for a newborn (within 6 months of birth), care for a child following child’s adoption or foster care placement (within 6 months of adoption or placement), or care for a seriously ill parent, child, spouse or registered domestic partner. In order to be eligible, employees in California are required to apply for and receive California Paid Family Leave benefits through the state.
This benefit will allow for employees with more than 1 year of service to take two weeks off for baby bonding or family leave with full pay. Employees will still be able to take additional time off and receive partial pay through California PFL benefits and/or vacation and sick time. These benefits will run concurrently with any unpaid leave protection under the California Family Rights Act and/or the Family Medical Leave Act.
