Changes of Status Checklist

September 24

Employees rarely remain in the same status throughout their entire career with a company.

Most employees go through multiple status changes throughout their time with an employer: various leaves of absence (some of which may be covered by FMLA), transitions from part-time status to full-time status, termination of employment, and maybe even rehire. Many of these status changes impact eligibility under the employer’s benefit plans. Are benefits handled differently for employees on FMLA leave versus non-FMLA leave? How do employees transition from benefit-eligible positions to non-eligible positions and back again? What happens if an employee terminates employment for only a couple of weeks and then is rehired? This topic will walk through the various types of status changes that employees could experience during their time with a company and how various benefits could be affected by those status changes. Finally, the information will emphasize the importance of planning to prevent issues from arising and how employers can prepare for the future to prevent new issues.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to discuss change in status.
  • You will be able to identify the benefits affected.
  • You will be able to review the different types of changes.
