  • Employees whose terms of employment are covered by a collective bargaining agreement to which the Employer is a party, unless the collective bargaining agreement provides otherwise;
  • Employees living or working in a country subject to the sanctions program administered by the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Asset Control; or
