Members’ Connection Highlights Leave of Absence Policy

Sunday, September 01, 2019

From our September edition of Members’ Connection:


Leave of Absence:

If an employee is unable to work due to disability, and their employer has authorized a leave of absence, the employee and their covered dependents may remain eligible for insurance under the Plan for a maxium of twelve (12) weeks. It is the employer’s responsibility to notify MIT when an employee has left on a medical leave and when they return back to work.
If the employee has not returned to work after the 12 weeks has run up, the employee and their covered dependents may be eligible to elect COBRA Continuation Coverage.
