What about disability?
A difficult decision, made easy.
When an employee can't work due to illness or injury, employers must face the difficult decision to stop paying wages because they don't know when their employee will return to work.
Disability insurance can ease this burden for the employer and provide employees with income so they can focus on getting better and back to work.
