The Abbvie Employee Assistance Program
The Abbvie Employee Relief Program provides short-term assistance as a one-time grant to cover unforeseen expenses related to:
» Disasters including natural disasters, government declared emergencies, or personal disasters such as a house fire.
» Financial hardships resulting from a sudden event that an employee could not be expected to have prepared for adequately through financial planning and budgeting, including:
» Domestic violence situations requiring an immediate move
» An unexpected loss of income, due to spouse loss of job or illness
» Death (employee, spouse/partner, dependent or immediate family member)
» An unexpected loss of alimony or child support
Grant amounts are determined on an individual basis based on the nature of the event and related expenses. The maximum grant award will vary dependent upon the individual circumstances of the applicant, including expense type, requested expenses, location of the employee and the currency exchange rate. All grants are determined in USD and will be distributed to the employee in their local currency.
Grants to US associates from the AbbVie Employee Relief Program may not be considered income to the employee (employees should consult further with their tax preparer). Grants are provided as a gift and need not be repaid to AbbVie Employee Relief Program or E4E Relief.
