HHHunt Senior Living Employee Handbook

4. If an employeeÊs schedule varies from week to week, a weekly average of the hours worked over the twelve (12) months prior to the beginning of the FMLA leave period will be used for calculating the employee's leave entitlement. Continuation of Benefits During Leave: Group health plan coverage and benefits will continue during the leave on the same basis as if the person had been actively at work, as follows: 1. For benefits during any paid portion of a Family and Medical Leave, employee contributions will be collected through payroll deduction. 2. For benefits during an unpaid leave, employee contributions will be paid according to HHHuntÊs requirements for payment by employees on „leave without pay.‰ Employees will be required to complete a „Leave of Absence Benefit Continuation‰ form. You will receive specific instructions about making such contributions. 3. Employees who become more than 30 days delinquent in their benefit payments will be dropped from coverage. Coverage will be restored upon their return to work within the time frame established in FMLA. 4. If you do not return to work following Family and Medical Leave for a reason other than (1) the continuation, recurrence, or onset of a serious health condition of the employee or the employeeÊs family member; (2) the serious injury or illness of a covered service member; or (3) other circumstances beyond your control, you may be required to reimburse us for our share of health insurance premiums paid on your behalf during your Family and Medical Leave. Returning to Work: Except as provided below, HHHunt will return employees to the same or an equivalent position and benefits if the employee returns to work after the leave. However, an employee has no greater right to restoration or to other benefits than if the employee had been continuously employed during the leave period. „Equivalent position‰ is defined as one with the same pay, benefits, working conditions, and status held prior to the leave. HHHunt requires you to inform us of your intent to return to work at least two days prior to the date you intend to return to work. Prior to returning to work, the employee must present a fitness-for-duty certificate. Employees who do not return to work upon the expiration of their Family and Medical Leave will be separated from employment except for situations governed by the Americans with Disabilities Act, workersÊ compensation law or other applicable state law, which will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Employees who are salaried and in the top ten percent (10%) highest paid employees at HHHunt are not guaranteed job restoration if it would cause substantial and grievous economic injury to HHHuntÊs operation.
