1. What will happen to my health benefits?

You will still receive Health Benefits (Mutuelle), however, your coverage will be changed from your current provider (Henner) to a new provider (Alan). Team members will be required to pay 50% of their coverage for their Mutuelle with Alan. If your package includes a top-up with private health insurance, this will continue. 

Note*: The new Mutuelle provides improved coverage over the previous package in many areas such as better pricing for multiple dependents coverage.  

2. What will happen to my accrued holidays and RTT in the old contract?

All unused vacation days and RTT will be carried over to Oyster and Team Members will be able to use them in the future while employed by Oyster’s own entity. This will come at no cost to you.

3. What will be the timeframe between off-boarding from the local partner and onboarding into the Oyster-owned entity?

The offboarding from the local partner and onboarding into the Oyster entity will go hand-in-hand and there will be no gap in salaried days.

4.What will happen with respect to Health Checks?

You may be exempt from the medical checks, provided you have had a medical checkup in the past five years (or in the past three years where applicable). If you have a valid medical check certification from the occupational health facility, you would need to share this copy with Oyster. Alternatively, you can proceed to get new health checks.
