The bottom rung of the AFLAC contract employment latter is “benefits coordinator/advisor. These hard-working folks are rarely sitting in an office to do their jobs; rather, they are traveling in their own personal vehicles and sometimes using the good old Chevro‘legs to pound the pavement, visiting businesses large, small, and micro sometimes past 10 PM, with families waiting at home to enjoy a small amount of quality time before bedtime.

 

these benefits advisers are contract employees and are fully aware they receive no benefits whatsoever such as major medical or even no-cost AFLAC policies (they actually pay higher than some other companies’ employees because they are only contracters, and not all AFLAC policies are even available to them). Upon interviewing with a regional AFLAC office for employment, these folks are sometimes offered the possibility of a six-figure income to entice them to sign on with the company. That’s not a tremendously realistic amount but that’s a different topic. Upon signing contract to work for AFLAC, the new employee is provided a schedule of bonuses which can be earned and the stats needed to achieve these bonuses. Unfortunately, AFLAC often denies pay out to employees who have Worked legitimately hard, sometimes putting in 70 hour workweeks to make sure they have submitted all needed documentation and applications. Sadly, AFLAC headquarters routinely refuses to process submitted paperwork in any sort of timely fashion, and then excuses the earned bonus by telling the employee that the needed information was not submitted by the deadline. At this, there is nothing the benefits advisers can do to further press the truth of the matter(Even through documentation of the submission of the needed paperwork, sadly); HQ has made up its mind and, who knows? Perhaps they had made up their mind to exclude the employee from the earned bonus by simply ignoring the submitted paperwork on their own schedules… Sadly, this affects AFLAC District managers, coordinators in training, benefits advisors, and most importantly policyholders! When a good person who works hard to do right by the customer is treated like crap by the company executives, Who withhold earned earned pay at their leisure, the quality of customer service suffers (either because these people decide their hard work is not worth what they receive and so they do not work hard any longer, or they simply quit The work all together). Now, in all honesty, if you’ve ever filed a claim with AFLAC and had an issue receiving payment for your claim, the problem is most likely at the headquarters level, probably simply waiting for headquarters staff to finally do their jobs.
  This petition  is a bit more specific than just the issue of headquarters being lackadaisical in processing; outlining to a fortune 200 company the fixing of one specific thing within the process gleans far better and wider-reaching results in most cases than simply saying, for instance, “your whole HQ department sucks because they twiddle their thumbs rather than process paperwork when  submitted.“

I’m asking for your support today, just a signature (though financial donations to sponsor this petition are very, very much appreciated), to ask CEO of AFLAC Dan Amos to step in and make changes to do right by these AFLAC employees who work there rear ends off, sometimes 14-hour days to jump through the hoops AFLAC company has dictated, trying to earn money to support families who sometimes wave goodbye at 5 AM and don’t get to welcome the person home until nearly midnight.… trying to achieve A predetermined level of production in order to receive The promised amount…   that Aflac HQ then witholds. well, that’s a heck of a run on sentence and I know my high school English teacher would fill that full of red ink, but I hope it gives an understanding of what we, the hard-working employees and families of such, deal with dozens of times a month. Please help us show Mr. Amos that this is not okay!
