Pay & Operations Approach Remains the Same for Week of May 3
We are starting to see favorable signs in regard to the number of COVID-19 cases in each state, which is good news. Within the auto industry, our customers are finalizing their plans to ramp up production, and we are working closely with them to ensure we are aligned.
As the situation improves, governments are working with the auto industry on reopening. We expect this will happen sometime in May, but we don’t know the exact date at this time. We will keep you updated on that timeline as we learn more.
The pandemic and each state’s response is starting to shift, and we know you have questions about what that means for you. We will share more details with you soon about when and how DENSO will begin to safely ramp up operations.
Nonexempt Associate Pay
*DENSO associates with paid time off (PTO) can choose to supplement this partial payment with PTO, otherwise the time will be recorded as unpaid time off without penalty.
** Premium details: Daily premium(s) will be processed and paid one paycheck after payment for hours worked. We apologize for the additional time needed to process these payments. The premium is approximately 20% or more for most associates
Exempt Associate Pay
We will continue to update you openly and honestly as we navigate the challenges ahead. Please take care of yourself and your loved ones.
Mental Health Resources Available
As we continue adjusting and dealing with our new normal, many people are experiencing mental health issues, possibly for the first time. This is completely understandable and normal, especially in these uncertain times. Please know there are resources available to you.
Throughout the next few weeks, we’ll be addressing issues mentioned in response to our recent associate survey on COVID-19 activities. This week, we’re focusing on stress and/or the struggle with being isolated from others.
Remember, the DENSO Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides resources and support for many issues including mental health, family conflict, domestic violence and financial hardship. For more information, go to the Benefits website, use code “denso,” and click COVID-19 at the top. EAP info and resources can be found along the left-hand side.
If you are experiencing a serious mental health episode, you can apply for FMLA and/or short-term-disability through our standard benefits process. For details, contact your local Benefits or TMS representative. Stay safe and healthy, both mentally and physically.
