Seasonal Layoff Reminders

Employees who return from layoff will have their benefits start the first of the following month in which they returned. As a reminder, returning from seasonal layoff is a qualifying life event in which employees can make changes to their benefit selections (must be completed within 31 days). To make changes, simply log into Benefits Path at or call the Benefits Service Center at 844.427.5558. Adding a dependent does require additional information such as a marriage license or co-habitation document, or children’s birth certificate. Newly added dependents will not have coverage until documentation is received.

For people leaders of Seasonal Employees: Employees on layoff for more than 30 days are required to take a pre-employment drug test unless the employee was kept in an ‘on-call’ status. Please ensure your employees are returned from layoff/dormant status if they are working consistently (30 or more hours per week). To start the return process, simply complete the request form here: Return from Seasonal Layoff Request.
