Short Term Disability

Short Term Disability

What you need to know if your employee is (or will be) out of work for 5 or more days due to a non-work related injury or illness.

Disability due to illness or injury is probably the most common reason given by employees who are absent from work. Although it is reasonable for employees to be excused for occasional absences due to illness or injury, employees who are absence from work for 5 or more consecutive workdays may qualify for Short Term Disability benefits.
