HHHunt Senior Living Employee Handbook

• Made full time/employed between July 1 and September 30: 25% of first year entitlement • There is no pro-ration for an employee who starts, or is made full-time, after September 30. In order to receive sick leave benefits, it is your responsibility to notify your supervisor daily (no later than two hours before your scheduled shift) of any illness preventing job attendance. If you are ill for more than three consecutive days, a medical practitionerÊs certification must be presented to your supervisor upon your return to work. All sick leave is forfeited and will not be paid upon resignation or termination. REMEMBER: Sick leave is a privilege; please do not abuse it. If overuse or misuse of sick leave is questioned, the Executive Director may request (at any time) a medical practitionerÊs certification and may deny the use of sick leave. Short-Term Disability insurance does not take effect until after the seventh calendar day you are absent from work; therefore, you should try to reserve sick leave for the initial time you are out. Up-to-date records of each employeeÊs sick leave (used/awarded) is maintained in UltiPro. If an extended absence from work is necessitated by accident or illness, full-time employees may use disability income (provided under HHHunt's group short-term disability plan). HHHunt is covered under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act („FMLA‰) and complies with all FMLA requirements. The FMLA provides eligible employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave in a 12-month period for the reasons enumerated below, except that the employee may take up to 26 weeks of leave in a single 12- month period to care for a covered service member with a serious illness or injury incurred in the line of duty. The leave may be paid, unpaid or a combination of paid and unpaid, depending upon the circumstances and as specified in this policy. Eligibility Requirements: To be eligible for FMLA leave, the employee must have completed twelve (12) months of total service with HHHunt and have worked at least one thousand two hundred fifty (1,250) hours in the twelve (12) months prior to taking the leave. Hours of work will be determined according to the principles established in the Fair Labor Standards Act for determining compensable hours. Reasons for Taking FMLA Leave: Eligible employees may take Family and Medical Leave for one or more of the following reasons: a. The birth of the employeeÊs child or to care for such child; b. A childÊs placement with the employee for adoption or foster care (requires legal action); FAMILY AND MEDICAL LEAVE (FMLA)
