After you’re employed with Assurant for 90 days, all benefits-eligible employees will be eligible for up to eight weeks of Pregnancy Leave, paid at 100%. (Applies to Pregnancy Leaves beginning after Jan. 1, 2020; any pregnancy or disability leaves that commence in 2019 will be subject to the 2019 Short-Term Disability plan design, even if the leave carries over into 2020.) Typically, Pregnancy Leave is 6 weeks for the birth of a child, though up to 8 weeks may be approved based on any complications. Click here for more information.
After 90 days of employment, all benefits-eligible parents, whether due to birth, adoption or surrogacy, will be eligible to take four weeks of 100% paid parental leave to bond with their new child. You can take the time off in four consecutive weeks, or split the time and use it in two, 2-week increments. Parental leave must be taken within six months of the birth or placement of a child and is in addition to any pregnancy leave taken under the Short-Term Disability plan.
