Employees miss work every day due to changes in their normal child and elder care routines. Even the most productive workers are at risk of losing focus, calling in sick, or potentially quitting their jobs due to breakdowns in their child and adult care coverage.
When last-minute facility and school closings, illness of caregivers or dependents, or business travel and other work demands occur, employees struggle to secure backup care since it is often difficult to find or cost prohibitive. That is when having Federal Occupational Health (FOH)'s work/life balance program, WorkLife4You, can make a difference. Our Emergency Backup Dependent Care program, which is accessible 24/7, helps employees and their families find and pay for high quality care — even at the last minute so they can show up and be fully present and productive at work, even when their regular care routines break down.
Employees and their family members — both in the United States and abroad — can contact us and immediately speak with a professional. Our team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and additional self-service tools and information can be found online on our interactive website.
