A leave of absence is a period of time a team member must be away from work while maintaining the status as an employee. A leave of absence differs from vacation and personal time; however, the team member may use their accrued vacation or personal time while out. Team Members who are out due to personal medical reasons may be eligible for Short-Term and Long-Term Disability.  Benefit premiums must be maintained while out on a leave of absence. Team Members are allowed to let their premiums go into arrears, but only up to 4 weeks. If a Team Member’s premiums get 5 weeks into arrears, their benefits will be cancelled.

Team members requesting a leave of absence must contact the Team Member Benefits Department to determine eligibility and the appropriate paperwork.
