Provide a Paid Time Off Benefit for Cancer Screenings
Cancer is a public health priority and is the second leading cause of death in New York State. Show employees their value by working to increase their wellness and reduce their burn out. Employee health and wellness should be a business priority. Employers can play an important role in increasing life-saving cancer screenings for employees. By adopting a policy allowing employees to take time off from work to get a cancer screening, health care costs related to cancer can be reduced and overall work force health improved. The purpose of a policy is to help prevent or detect certain cancers at an early stage, by allowing employees to obtain preventive medical services such as cancer screenings without using accrued leave or sick time.
A paid time off for cancer screening benefit for employees can save time, money, and lives.
