Short-Term Disability

Employees who are out or who expect to be out for longer than 10 days for an illness or injury should notify Andrea Velasquez as soon as the absence or need for absence is known. Andrea will work with the employee to complete the appropriate paperwork and will work with the employee and his/her healthcare provider throughout the absence to assist the employee with his/her return to work.

To be eligible for short-term disability, an employee must also be eligible for group long-term disability. The first 10 days of an extended absence are charged to an employee's SLR and/or CTO or will be unpaid if the employee has no accrued time available. Days 11 through six calendar months are, in most cases, paid through the short-term disability plan as long as necessary paperwork, including appropriate medical documentation, is completed and approved.
