New Employee Benefits Guide

Check out our new Benefits At a Glance Guide, featuring some terrific new and increased benefits. 

Qualifying Life Event

A qualifying life event can be made when a Wayside employee that is currently eligible for benefits experiences a change in situation i.e. birth/adoption, loss of coverage, financial hardship, marriage, divorce, etc. This allows you to join our health, dental or vision plans and flexible spending accounts by enabling a qualifying life event enrollment. 

Pet Insurance

Wayside offers pet insurance through Nationwide, which is open to all employees, full and part-time. The plans vary, and a quote is available through the provider based on your coverage needs. Check the document explorer below for more details!

New Parental Leave Policy

Wayside understands the stresses of caring for a new child and is committed to flexible work schedules for returning employees up to 6 months after the start of the leave. 

Effective 1/1/2017, Wayside has increased the amount of Parental Leave  job protection provided to employees by 30% from 12 weeks to 16 weeks. 

Wayside offers up to 16 weeks of job protection, with the first two weeks fully paid in addition to the below benefits, for all employees for the care of a newborn or recently adopted/fostered child. These 16 weeks may be spread/utilized over 6 months (24 weeks).

Wayside offers Short Term Disability benefits that provides salary continuation at 85% for eligible employees. 

Employees are also able to use any accrued time to supplement this salary continuation for the remainder of the leave. 

Wayside provides a Pre-Leave Consult to all employees using Parental Leave, FMLA, or Medical Leave to discuss these options and employee needs individually.
