We will also discuss appropriate credit whenever an associate’s work is unacceptable according to your performance standards.

If the employee leaves within 1 year, we will replace them at half your original investment, and with our 5•50 Premium extension we will extend our standard one year of coverage to five full years. If your employee leaves for any reason during that time, we will replace them for half your original investment.
