Unum helps you support your employees when they need it most
When employees have productive time off, they have more productive time on the clock. We're committed to being your partner — from leave planning and preparation to helping your employees transition back into the workplace.
Mental and physical well-being are paramount to productivity
At Unum, we recognize that life doesn't always give you a heads up and that sometimes you have no choice but to face a challenge head-on. We believe that productive time off can lead to more productive time on the clock, and we're willing to bet that your employees agree.
FMLA, ADA, PFL, DBL — it sounds complicated, and it is. That's why we're here to offer expert assistance. Our Leave and Absence Management team can ensure that your organization is in compliance with the ever-changing laws and make sure that your employees are getting the time off they're entitled to — helping you avoid costly fines and legal fees.
