Help employees scheduled for layoff by reviewing the following with them.
Let employees know what their current leave balances are and what their projected balances will be as of the effective date of layoff. Ensure that employees know what will happen to their leave and or compensatory time accumulations (for example, professional staff are not paid for more than 240 hours of annual leave regardless of the final annual leave balance).
The layoff benefits summary can help employees with questions about insurance coverage following layoff, including medical/dental and life insurance, retirement plans, and other benefits. Employees may also email - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Laid off employees who work for the UW for at least eight hours a month will continue to receive the employer-paid portion of medical and dental benefits, however, the opportunity for such work is based on the need for workers and is not guaranteed. Employees who are working as a temporary employee following layoff should notify the Benefits Office by email - email@example.com - to ensure benefits are kept current.
UW CareLink, the University of Washington's faculty and staff assistance program, may be able to provide resources to help employees cope with the personal and financial challenges of job loss. UW CareLink is available to laid off employees up to 30 days following the date of separation from employment.
Employees scheduled for layoff may also wish to consider exploring temporary employment opportunities at the University through UTemp Staffing.
