Employee Safety

Safety is our number one priority

Our primary focus is safeguarding our employees, many of whom are on the front lines of moving goods through the supply chain. Our teams have shown inspiring resourcefulness in navigating this unprecedented event. We're grateful for every effort our employees make to take care of each other and keep supply chains running.


We’re following the guidance of the World Health Organization (WHO), the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and our own company protocols, including our Pandemic Paid Sick Leave offering for employees affected by COVID-19. We've instructed employees to stay home if they’re ill, to be tested if they believe they've been exposed to COVID-19 and to report any exposure, health concerns or travel to high-risk areas. When necessary, we're temporarily closing facilities for deep cleaning or thorough sanitation. For sites that are open, we have extra cleanings occurring throughout the day with hygiene and sanitary products readily available. In addition, we have implemented guidance on face masks and are procuring them for our employees.


We've added Pandemic Paid Sick Leave to our Paid Time Off (PTO) benefits package, allowing affected employees to take up to two weeks (10 days / 80 hours) of additional sick leave on top of their normal PTO.


We've aggregated internal COVID-19 Employee Resources (sign-in required), including information on global health procedures and alternate work arrangements (where applicable). Employees can consult our internal Workplace COVID-19 Info Central (sign-in required) for information and resources on COVID-19, human resources procedures and policies, information security instructions, remote working best practices, and more.


We've encouraged all employees to safeguard their mental health. The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is available at no cost to assist our employees and their family members with telephonic support and referrals in a variety of categories, including counseling, crisis consultation, legal issues, personal finances, work-life balance and more.


The EAP is a confidential service available 24/7, 365 days a year. Please visit XPO Benefits Healthy Resources for additional information.
