​​5.7.10 Unemployment and State Disability Insurance, Paid Family Leave

The archdiocese is exempt from federal and state unemployment and state disability insurance programs, including Paid Family Leave​Instead, the archdiocese offers voluntary long- and short-term disability insurance programs that cover disabilities due to non-work-related illnesses or injuries. All employees who work 20 or more hours per week are eligible to participate in these voluntary programs. Employees who elect this coverage pay their premiums through payroll deductions​. The archdiocese does not provide voluntary unemployment insurance.​

Effective 2021, employees of the Archdiocesan Catholic Center ("ACC") and Cemeteries and Mortuaries ("CCM") have been enrolled in the state and federal unemployment insurance and state disability insurance programs.  ACC and CCM employees should consult with the Human Resources department on enrollment rules for the voluntary short and long-term disability program.

Further information about these plans can be obtained from the Insurance Department​​ at the Archdiocesan Catholic Center at 213-637-7671 or from the person in charge at the location.
