Lippert Team Member Information
Lippert Team Member Emergency Fund
With grateful hearts we are excited to announce the launch of our Lippert Team Member Emergency Fund. This Fund was established for team members in dire need due to COVID-19 layoffs and focuses on potential need in two main categories; food and security for our families.
Priority of assistance will be given to those in need between the last Lippert paycheck and when unemployment payments begin. You will need to provide proof that you have applied for unemployment. To be considered, email Care@lci1.com for more information. Please include your Plant # in your email.

Team Members will be called back individually for each Location. Please do not report back to work until you’ve received notification from your onsite HR and/or Leader.

Benefits & Wellness
Lippert is committed to assisting our team members during this time of uncertainty. To assist with any questions relating to benefits / medical / EAP services, we wanted to provide you with the following information.
COVID-19 (Coronovirus) update: The federal government is allowing new options for states to amend their laws to provide unemployment insurance benefits related to COVID-19. For example, federal law allows states to pay benefits where:• An employer temporarily ceases operations due to COVID-19, preventing employees from coming to work;
• An individual is quarantined with the expectation of returning to work after the quarantine is over; and
• An individual leaves employment due to a risk of exposure or infection or to care for a family member
In addition, federal law does not require an employee to quit in order to receive benefits due to the impact of COVID-19. State specific guidance on unemployment insurance benefits is listed below. To file a claim, please click on the link provided for the state that you work in.
