Salary Continuation

Salary Continuation is a benefit available to corporate exempt, full-time employees for absence due to illness or injury. Like EIL, the first five consecutive days of an illness are deducted from accrued PTO. In the case of outpatient surgery or overnight hospitalization, Salary Continuation can be accessed immediately. Salary Continuation is not available for absences related to cosmetic procedures. 

After 90 days of employment, eligible employees may access Salary Continuation on the sixth consecutive day of an absence—after providing a physician’s statement which includes the beginning and ending dates of your leave.  

Salary Continuation benefits are based on a percentage of your salary at the time of the disability and works in the following way:

Length of service First 5 days Next 30
(calendar days)
Next 60
(calendar days)
3 months–1 year PTO 100% 60%
1–3 years PTO 100% 80%
3 years or more PTO 100% 100%
