Helpful Information For UtiliCon Employees
- Where can I obtain more information about a leave of absence and/or the Family Medical Leave Act? I may need to be out of work for an extended period due to a medical related situation for myself, an immediate family member or other qualifying event.
Click here for information/FMLA policy regarding Family Medical Leave (FML), such as eligibility, reasons for taking FML, and the steps that must be taken to apply for FML. We do not automatically designate leave as FML. Employees must complete and submit the FML application and medical certification forms within the required timeframe (15 days) to be approved for FML. Most states follow Federal FMLA guidelines, which provides up to twelve weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave and ensures continuation of existing health coverage to eligible employees who meet the requirements for taking the leave and follow the policy requirements. In states where the law extends the leave beyond 12 weeks, the state law would apply (example: Connecticut allows up to 16 weeks of unpaid leave). Please click to view the FMLA posting, a Leave of Absence Application and Certification of Health Care Provider Form (employee own, family member, military qualifying exigency, employee own covered military, and caring for a veteran). Additional information and any questions must be directed to the Benefits Department at the Home Office by calling 1.800.248.TREE, ext. 4271 during normal business hours, 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM (EST).
- Can I continue my benefits once I leave the company?
You may be eligible to continue existing health benefit coverage if you leave the Company for any reason other than a discharge related to Gross Misconduct. Once your reason for separation from active service has been reported and you are determined eligible for continued coverage under COBRA, you will be sent a COBRA notice and an election application, along with the applicable rates. The completed application must be returned to elect continued coverage. Should you subsequently return to active service, contact your General Foreperson or Supervisor immediately to determine eligibility for re-enrollment under the group health plan. Please direct all COBRA questions to the COBRA Specialist at 1.800.248.TREE, ext. 4345.
