Who You Gonna Call—Best Buy Call-In-Sick Number
Some companies offer paid sick leave as a benefit to give themselves a competitive edge. What’s the case with Best Buy? In this article, we’ll tell you what the Best Buy call-in-sick number is and show you:
- What sick leave rules the company has
- What laws you can rely on
- How to call in sick more efficiently if you subscribe to DoNotPay
Best Buy employees can call in sick based on the following:
- The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- The Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act (EPSLA)
- Individual state laws
- Company policy
The first two are federal-level acts that protect employees from being forced to go to work sick. The FMLA provides 12 weeks of unpaid sick leave per year to employees of companies with at least 50 staff members—Best Buy has a lot more than that.
When it comes to the EPSLA, this temporary act provides employees with mandatory ten days of paid leave for any Coronavirus-related health issue.
Since federal law doesn’t provide any permanent paid sick leave law (yet), several states—15, to be exact—and D.C. decided to introduce state-level laws to provide better care for the employee. In some states without such a law, cities and counties have enacted local laws.
You should check out whether your Best Buy office falls under the jurisdiction of such a law before calling in sick. Check out the following table to find articles about individual state laws:
|New Jersey||District of Columbia||Ohio||Georgia|
According to its policy, Best Buy will provide you with a different number of sick leave days, as shown in the table below:
|Employment Type||Amount of Paid Sick Leave per Year|
|Full-time employees||48 hours (six days)|
|Part-time employees in CA, CO, DC, IL, LA, MA, MD, MT, ND, NE, OK, PR, RI, WY||48 hours (six days)|
|Part-timers in other states||None|
Those who receive paid sick leave will get them in a lump sum at the beginning of the year, meaning that you don’t need to accrue them over time. The leave time you get cannot roll over to the next year.
