After salary delays, Jet staff face uncertainty over MediclaimStaff of now grounded Jet Airways are a worried lot — after months of salary delays they are facing uncertainty over extension of their group Mediclaim provided by the company.

This has added to their woes as many employees depend on corporate mediclaim for treatment of life-threatening diseases such as cancer in the family.

The group mediclaim provided by the company expires on July 31, 2019. The general insurer Oriental Insurance Company Ltd provides group mediclaim facility to Jet staff.

“We have been informed that the group mediclaim will expire in July. There is no communication over its renewal. This is a big issue for many colleagues who depend on corporate mediclaim,” an employee said.

Another employee said the airline had in March given the option of augmenting the existing medical policy by making additional contribution towards the top-up.

“Since enough people did not subscribe to the offer, the proposal was shelved. The scheme required a minimum number of subscribers,” he said.

They have repeatedly appealed for payment of salaries, but the management has expressed its inability to clear any dues.
