Appriss provides you with free short-term and salary continuation that pays a portion or all of your current earnings if you cannot work due to a non-work-related illness or injury. Your disability may run concurrently with other federal or state leave programs, as applicable.
Short-Term Disability (STD) and Salary Continuation
As a fulltime regular employee, you’re automatically covered under the Short-Term Disability (STD) Plan or Salary Continuation at no cost to you.
If you are on an unpaid leave or being paid STD through Sunlife and you’re enrolled in medical, dental, or other group insurance plans, the premiums normally withheld from your paycheck, along with other deductions, will be put into arrears and later taken from normal payroll in small payments upon your return.
Maternity and Paternity Leave
Maternity and Paternity Leave is granted based on FMLA, federal, state, and local laws/regulations. Pay associated with leave is processed through Short-term Disability or Salary Continuation, which ever plan is applicable.
