Employee Wellness Support Program (EWSP) Update #2

The PIPSC Advisory Team continues to play a key role in developing and providing specific direction to the Technical Committee, as well as approving their work on a monthly basis. Since November, the Advisory Team has been mapping the processes, from the initial leave requests through to either a return to work, or transition to Long Term Disability. The Advisory Team will continue with this thorough approach over the next few months to make sure the vision and guiding principles are embodied in the EWSP.

The Steering Committee, responsible for developing the Employee Wellness and Support Program (EWSP), met on Thursday February 1, 2018 to review and approve the Technical Committee’s work to date. Under the guidance of the PIPSC Advisory Team, the Technical Committee developed the vision and guiding Principles for the EWSP. This program, that addresses individual employee needs and circumstances, will provide prompt and ongoing support to employees on leave for medical reasons, and facilitate a sage and successful reintegration into the workplace.

September 2018 is the current target date for completion. No changes will be made to the current sick leave plan without ratification by the members of each group for their respective group.
