Short periods of absence
Most absences from work are relatively short and your membership of the DB Section in these circumstances will remain unchanged.
Longer periods of absence - HR advises the Administration Team of your temporary absence
Nothing for you to do at this stage as HR will let the Administration Team know about your absence.
Longer periods of absence - the Administration Team updates your record accordingly
If you are away for a longer period and you stop receiving contractual pay or statutory sick pay your membership may be continued with the Company and Trustee consent.
