Time Off at UBT

The time you need to live your life

We’re big believers in “work to live,” not “live to work.” That’s why UBT offers a competitive vacation and sick leave policy that gives you ample time to rest, recreate, and recuperate. New employees start accruing leave immediately. 

Wellness Incentives

Rewarding your healthy choices

They say good health is its own reward, but we think your healthy choices deserve an extra bonus — in this case, extra time off! Associates can earn up to two additional paid days off per year by participating in preventive screenings, fitness programs, and wellness seminars or events.

Community Involvement Days

Lend a hand and earn time off

Here at UBT, we care about our community, our customers, and each other — and that means we enthusiastically encourage our associates to give freely of their time and talents through our Community Involvement program. So enthusiastically, in fact, that we’ll even reward your efforts with additional paid time off when you participate in enough activities organized by our Community Involvement Committee. Good for you and the community — now that’s a win-win.

Leaves of Absence & FMLA

Options for when you need more time

We know that sometimes life gets in the way, and situations arise where you may need to be absent from work for longer than a simple vacation. If you need to be absent for more than three consecutive days, you may be eligible for a leave of absence. Additionally, UBT offers up to 12 weeks of unpaid time off under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) for events such as welcoming a new child or navigating serious health conditions for yourself or an immediate family member. Although the absence is unpaid, your job status, pay, and benefits are protected under FMLA. Below, you’ll find details on other programs you can participate in that offer pay while you’re out.

Short-term disability salary continuation program

UBT’s short-term disability salary continuation policy offers pay to associates while they are recovering from extended illnesses and injuries. After a two-week waiting period, UBT will begin paying a portion of your base monthly salary if you are injured or ill (including maternity) and unable to work for an extended period of time. Associates receive 100% of lost income for four weeks and 60% for an additional 20 weeks. Officer-level associates receive 100% of lost income for a full 24 weeks. You are automatically eligible for this program beginning the first of the month, following one full month of continuous service greater than 30 hours per week.
