This sample Emergency Ride Home policy comes from a local Winnipeg workplace.
Eligible employees will receive up to 4 (four) emergency taxi rides per calendar year per the rules listed below.
Emergency rides home are available to registered commuter participants and may be used for:
· Urgent medical need (does not include pre-scheduled medical/dental appointments).
· Unanticipated departure of your registered carpool/vanpool
· Personal or family emergency
· Unscheduled overtime
The program is not to be used for pre-scheduled medical or dental appointments, pre-scheduled overtime or any other pre-approved leave.
Instructions for an Emergency Ride Home:
Plan member informs their manager that they will be using the Emergency Ride Home program.
The manager calls Security to inform them that an employee will require a taxi slip for an emergency ride.
The employee calls a (pre-arranged taxi company) taxi for pick up.
Emergency ride home slips have a specific account number for the ERH program.
Taxi company will bill separately for ERH account.
Note: Employees who fail to comply with the terms of the program including falsifying claims or information may be subject to disciplinary action.
