Providing for a work/life balance is an IR priority. IR offers programs to assist employees in achieving life/work balance
PAID TIME OFF AND OTHER PAID LEAVES
Personal Time Off (PTO)
This is the program offered to provide employees the opportunity to take paid time off work
for rest, relaxation, holidays, illness and personal needs. PTO gives employees the flexibility
to select time away from work in a manner that fits their personal and professional schedule.
PTO combines holiday pay, vacation pay and sick pay into one "account". Since the Company moved to the
Paid Time Off (PTO) policy a few years ago, IR has not had a traditional, established holiday
schedule. The rationale behind that is to allow employees to have maximum flexibility in
deciding which days they prefer to reserve for themselves and/or their families. That level
of choice lets each employee observe the holidays, religious events or other days that are most
meaningful to them as individuals, and to make coordination of schedules with friends and
families easier. That flexibility also lets business functions operate with less
complete shutdown time.
The death of an immediate family member is often a sad and difficult event, one that calls
for our compassion, respect and support. IR provides paid leave to provide employees with the
time they need to be with their families and friends to grieve the loss of a loved one.
Regular employees are granted military leave, if they are required to participate in active duty for annual military training. Regular employees are granted an extended military leave if it is necessary to fulfill a military obligation.
LEAVE OF ABSENCE
A medical leave of absence may be paid or unpaid and may be granted to an employee who is unable to work due to illness, injury or pregnancy. All medical leaves will run concurrently with all family care/medical leaves. Medical leaves can run up to six months for employees with less than five years of service and up to 12 months with five years or greater service time.
A personal leave of absence may be granted for up to thirty (30) calendar days for personal reasons.
EDUCATIONAL ASSISTANCE - TUITION REIMBURSEMENT
Pre-approved educational assistance requests are available to reimbursement at either 100% or 50% of the cost of the course depending upon their direct value to your current job up to maximum amounts established by the Company policy.
