Unfortunately I have to have surgery. Doctor says I will out for 4-6 weeks. Obviously I will need to put in for a LOA. My question is, does spot pay short term disability? I know it would not be the total amount I would make each check, but some is better than none.

It depends, if you qualify for benefits, the STD insurance (No giggles lol :first_move:) is included at no cost to you. It should pay approx. 60% of your regular pay.

Yes, I'm full time (Sr Team Lead) Thanks for all kind words. I hope I recover quickly as well. I admit I giggled a bit about STD insurance.

Yes, under some circustances they pay STD ie. sick pay. If you are an hourly tm, you will get a percentage of your hourly rate, somewhere between 50 and 75% of your hourly rate will be paid to you as long as your average hours have consistently been above 19.5 average hours or higher. If you have more than 2 years of service and the coverage is just for you, you can be on the better coverage plans. The Target Benefit Center will determine what your eligibility is, 800-828-5850 ask for the leave and disability department.

Generally speaking most of the paperwork is done through the Target Benefits Center's leave and disability department though

Have you taken a leave lately? Do you work in the loa dept? all loa ?'s should be addressed by the TBC. They send to employees the paperwork to go on a leave, and they explain all of the eligibility and enrollment into an loa guidelines.
Maybe at the corp level, not at the store level.

I hope you were able to get all the answers to your loa questions.
