DePaul’s Bright Horizons Back-Up Care benefit for benefits-eligible employees now includes pet care and virtual camps for children as of Jan. 1.
During a lapse or breakdown in normal pet care arrangements, employees can trade in a day of back-up care for a $150 credit on Rover, valid for 90 days after the exchange takes place. There is no employee co-pay to use this service.
Employees can alternatively trade in a day of back-up care for access to a full day of live, virtual activities/programs that a child can attend, provided by Steve & Kate’s Camp. There is no limit to the number of activities the child can join throughout the day, and there is no co-pay for the employee to use this service.
Benefits-eligible employees have access to 15 days of back-up care per calendar year.
