How Does the Vesting Requirement Relate to Disability?

November 13, 2015

At that point, the employee gets a temporary disability (because of nonwork related activities) and no longer performs work, but is not terminated and remains an employee. In this case, does the 1,000-hour rule get waived since there is a disability? Or does it stay in place since there was no termination event? Thanks for any help/insight.
