We recognize that many employees and/or their loved ones have suffered flooding of their homes or residences and others might still be in danger. We want everyone to take the necessary steps to be safe.
To best understand the individual situation of each employee, we have established an employee hotline. Please call the hotline and let us know if you are unable to return to work – or assume your emergency response duties – as soon as possible.
