    BENEFITS FOR EMPLOYEES
     
    Extended absences can be complicated for employees - chances are they've never taken one before. 
     
    We'll make sure employees clearly understand the rights and responsibilities associated with their leave and have all the information needed to make educated decisions.
     
    Each employee receives a wallet card with a single toll-free phone number  to file a claim for any type of leave. And if they have a question during their leave, they can expect prompt, one-on-one help from their assigned Absence Manager.
