As we continue to monitor the coronavirus and understand the concerns employees have in regards to possibly being exposed to the virus in the workplace, we are updating the Company’s protocols to allow employees to voluntarily choose to self-isolate (choose to stay home on their own). Employees who voluntarily choose to self-isolate and cannot work from home must use any available PTO or vacation time. If you cannot work from home or run out of any available PTO or vacation time and remain on a voluntary self-isolation you will go unpaid. Employees who choose to self-isolate and are on any of the Company’s insurance or voluntary plans will have to pay their monthly premiums to the Company by check to maintain their coverage. If premiums are not paid you may be in jeopardy of losing coverage and will not be eligible to re-enroll in health insurance coverage until the Company’s open enrollment cycle begins in July 2020 for the next plan year starting September 1, 2020.
Any employee who chooses to self-isolate must inform their manager and HR and receive a receipt from HR their voluntary self-isolation has been recorded. HR will communicate with those employees on the monthly premiums they would be responsible for paying by check to keep their insurance coverage.
We have another update on our policies related to the coronavirus coming out shortly so please ensure you check your emails or review the company’s coronavirus website at https://www.advancedroofing.com/coronavirus/ to stay up to date on the latest information.
As always, if you have any questions please contact the HR department at firstname.lastname@example.org or by responding to this email.
