Leave of absence (FMLA, paid leave, jurisdictional)

Sedgwick helps employers manage all types of leave, including state, federal and municipal leave, such as family and medical leave, paid time off, sick time, vacation, military service and employer-specific policies.

Travel

In today’s global economy, many employers retain and support an international employee population. To ensure that employees who are injured in the workplace outside of the U.S. have ready access to high quality healthcare options, Sedgwick offers our 24/7/365 international case management services.

Sedgwick case managers function as an advocate for employees, providing assistance with international travel exposures, including automobile accidents, general liability exposures, lost luggage, and access to appropriate medical care, offering an explanation about how the claims process works, and coordinating resources to ensure that the employee’s welfare remains at the forefront throughout the process. Our multilingual experts provide a wide range of medical-related referral services, recognize subrogation and contribution potential through contingency-based recovery services, and also facilitate investigations for all loss and claim exposures, including property, marine, automobile and general liability and numerous specialized coverages.

Unemployment compensation

In the U.S., our experts can develop and refine a custom unemployment compensation cost control program specifically for each company, ultimately resulting in maximum cost effectiveness with minimal time invested.

Whole health

Sedgwick is finding new ways to integrate health and productivity management tools along the spectrum, bridging benefit models through innovations in health advocacy. Through our whole health model, Sedgwick is the first to integrate and simplify administration of health, workers’ compensation, disability and leave benefits, linking data and resources through a single point of contact to help promote physical, emotional and financial well-being in the workforce. The whole health solution connects Sedgwick’s expertise in workers’ compensation and disability with the high-touch, high-tech healthcare solution offered by Accolade.

It’s often difficult for employees to understand all of the programs and health-related benefits their employer offers — and who to call for what. An employee’s own health issues, as well as the medical needs of their family, can impact productivity. Within this program, each plan member is assigned a health assistant, who will work with the whole health team to help the employee get the best care possible, navigate complex insurance and benefits, receive the financial assistance to which they are entitled and quickly return to their normal, productive lives.
