Paid Time Off

We're fast moving and have high expectations at A-B, and to perform your best, you need to rest, refresh and enjoy time away from work.

Take advantage of Paid Time Off (PTO) offered by A-B to eligible employees in addition to floating holidays. Request time away in Workday.

Sick time

When you're feeling under the weather, time away to recover can be essential.

To enable you to take time away and heal from short-term illness or care for an unwell child, spouse or domestic partner living in your home, A-B offers eligible employees up to 10 days of sick time. To view your sick time, check out Workday or take a look at the policy on the Tap Room.

If you've used all of your sick days and have a condition where you may need to take more time away, you may want to apply for Short Term Disability.

Don't forget...

You do not have to share the condition with your manager when you request sick days. Please take a look at the Sick Time policy on the Tap Room for more information.

Short-term Disability

Short-term Disability is available through MetLife and offers income protection to eligible employees if you become ill (including pregnancy) or injured - a non-work related injury - and are unable to work for a limited period of time, which could be up to 26 weeks.

To review your benefits, access MetLife's portal here.

If you need to file a leave request:

  1. Please let your manager know 30 days before your leave begins (or as far in advance as is practical). You don't have to share your actual condition with your manager.
  2. To submit a request, call MetLife at (800) 396-8621 or submit your request online.

Long-term Disability

Anheuser-Busch offers the option to purchase Long-term Disability from MetLife for extended leave when required due to an ongoing health event.

If you enroll during your 30 day new hire elections window, Long-term Disability coverage will start on your hire date. If you enroll during Annual Enrollment, coverage will start on January 1 if you're actively at work on January 1.

The amount of time you need to be disabled before Long-term Disability benefit payments begin (called the elimination period) is typically 180 days, but please confirm by viewing your Summary Plan Description in the Benefits Portal.

Bereavement Leave

We are so sorry for your loss.

If you are an active full- or part-time employee and lose a family member or certified domestic partner, A-B offers you paid bereavement leave for up to three scheduled workdays. Please notify your supervisor before taking your leave time.

Here are resources to support you during this difficult time.
