OYO Introduces COVID-19 Bereavement Policy

Amping up efforts to provide the necessary support for employees during the ongoing pandemic, OYO has announced COVID-19 bereavement.


In the unfortunate event of the death of an employee due to COVID-19, the company will support the family of the deceased with 8 months pay in full and a term insurance payout which equals three years of their annual pay.


OYO will also sponsor the education of the employee's children (upto two) and extend medical coverage of upto 3 lakhs for the spouse and children for a period of 5 years.


Besides statutory benefits, the employee's legal heirs / nominee will be granted an opportunity to liquidate and settle the vested options or exercised shares upon the occurrence of the next liquidity event.


The company is further extending support to OYO alumni and providing them with access to a slew of COVID-related resources.


The company has opened up COVID-19 related healthcare benefits for its alumni, including access to OYO's COVID-19 war room, OYO COVID CHAMPIONS - a community of more than 200 volunteers across over 50 cities to ensure response and support for verified information on facilities, oxygen supply, medicines, and access to OYO sourced oxygen concentrators and cylinders, among others.


Ritesh Agarwal, Founder & Group CEO, OYO said, "COVID-19's second wave has been devastating for many. During this time, the well-being of OYOpreneurs and their families is our utmost priority. Unfortunately, some of our colleagues have lost their battle with COVID-19 and we hope that our bereavement support will help their kin in this difficult time. We are further extending COVID support and resources to our OYO alumni, till the pandemic persists. We want to do more, not just for OYOpreneurs, but also for our extended OYO family. We are all safe only when each one of us is safe.
