Work Benefits

If you use all your Personal days and then you are absent due to illness for 1 day, you will be on leave without pay. The banked sick leave cannot be used to cover these single occasion sick days. However, if you have a more serious illness that keeps you off for 7 days or more, you will be covered under Short Term Disability. If you have credits to cover the waiting period of 5 days for this longer absence then you will not lose any pay. The proposed program is designed to give you up to 7 days to cover illnesses or other personal issues that you can take one day at a time. The program also offers excellent coverage for longer-term illnesses. We want to ensure that people who need time off for sickness are well covered. The people who will be affected by this new program are those who are sick one day at a time after their 7 personal days are used. If there is an ongoing illness issue that was covered by STD and then causes you to be away one day at a time later, these would be considered a recurrence of an illness and will still be covered by STD.

If you have no Personal Days available and are absent due to an accident or hospitalization, you will be covered from day 1 by the Short Term Disability Program (minimum 70% income replacement with top-up to 100% if you have banked sick leave).

As for Manulife, they are simply the administrators of the program. Canada Post makes all payments and Manulife has no financial incentive to deny claims. They are there to assess the claims for Canada Post and provide the necessary support for you to get you back to work.
