In addition, Aramark’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is available to all employees and their families at no cost. It provides helpful tools for managing anxiety and fears, including support to help explain this complex situation to children.
Aramark is supporting U.S. hourly associates whose jobs have been affected or hours have been reduced by the crisis, with temporary work at Aramark locations where extra support is needed. Associate can sign up for job placement via Aramark’s mobile app dedicated to this.
In addition, Aramark has implemented the following measures to help associates during the pandemic:
- For U.S. part-time and full-time field associates in active account locations with a confirmed case of COVID-19 or who are quarantined due to COVID-19 related symptoms or exposure, up to 21 additional days of sick time, once all accrued sick time has been exhausted. This additional paid time off will be at no cost to the associate, regardless of how many sick days the associate has accrued.
- Extended company-paid medical benefits coverage through June 30, 2020 for associates enrolled in Aramark benefit plans who are dealing with reduced hours or site closures due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
- All Aramark employees will have access to Telehealth, a 24/7 resource for people who feel sick and need immediate access to advice and care from a licensed medical professional.
