Short Term Salaried

Q. 
Who is eligible to participate in salary continuance?
A. 
All regular, full-time active salaried associates who have completed their 90 day benefits probationary period are eligible to participate in the salaried associate salary continuance benefit.
Q. 
How much are the premiums?
A. 
This plan is provided by the Company at no cost to associates.
Q. 
What does this benefit pay?
A. 
If you must be out of work for a non-work related injury or illness, this benefit provides full 100% salary continuation for up to 13 weeks (offset by state disability benefits where applicable).
Q. 
Do any deductions come out of my disability pay?
A. 
Yes, if you are enrolled in the Shaw benefit plans that require payroll premium deductions, those deductions will continue so that you will not have to repay them when you return from leave.  Because this is considered taxable income, your check will be subject to all normal payroll taxes.  Your salary continuance pay will be treated like a normal paycheck. If you are enrolled in the Shaw 401(k) Plan, those contributions will also continue to be deducted.
Q. 
Can I stay out all 13 weeks?
A. 
Salary continuance payments are designed to provide income to you while you are on a medical leave of absence up to 13 weeks.  You must be approved for a medical leave by the Shaw Nursing Department in order to receive these benefits.  You should notify your HR Manager if you expect to be out for a medical leave of absence. When your doctor releases you to return to work, your medical leave will end.  You are expected to return to work even if you have not "used up" the full 13 weeks.
Q. 
What happens if I'm out longer than 13 weeks?
A. 
As a salaried associate, if your leave extends past 13 weeks, you are eligible for long term disability benefits if your condition is approved by Prudential.  The Company provides long term disability benefits coverage at no cost to salaried associates. Please refer to the Salaried Long Term Disability SPD in the resources section for more details.
