Correct Craft institutes disaster pay policy

ORLANDO, Fla. – Florida boat manufacturer Correct Craft, Inc., has initiated a new corporate policy to aid its employees in the wake of Hurricanes Charley and Frances, called the Disaster Relief Pay Policy, the company said in a recent release.

The new program will pay employees eight hours per day when the factory must close due to extreme weather situations. Correct Craft has also started a Relief Fund for employees who have been seriously affected by the recent hurricanes, and has a loan program in place to meet the affected employees’ immediate cash needs.

Correct Craft said it instituted the policy because it realizes many people live paycheck-to-paycheck, and any missed time from work can seriously affect its workers. The company employs 310 people in its Orlando facilities.

“This is what truly sets Correct Craft apart from other corporations, whether privately-held or publicly traded,” Vice President of Marketing Gary Meloon said. “We value our employees and consider them family, so to implement a Natural Disaster Relief Pay Policy just seems to be the right thing to do.”
