PARENTAL LEAVE | Parental leave is provided for permanent full-time team members following the birth or adoption of a child for the purpose of bonding. Benefits will be paid at 100% of weekly earnings based on the following schedule:
Primary Caregivers If employed for one year or longer, team members are eligible to receive up to four consecutive weeks of parental leave. If employed less than one year, team members are eligible to receive up to four weeks of parental leave.
Non- Primary Caregivers If employed for one year or longer, team members are eligible to receive up to two weeks of parental leave within the first month of birth. If employed for less than one year, team members are eligible to receive up to one week of parental leave within the first month of birth.
Parental leave will run concurrently with medical leave. For example, a primary caregiver, employed one or more years, who gave birth will typically receive six weeks of medical leave benefits which will be followed by two weeks of parental leave benefits for a total of eight weeks of paid leave between the two policies.
Parental leave benefits will not be paid beyond the stated benefit. If a team member continues to be absent from work, they are eligible to request PTO.
FOSTER LEAVE | Foster leave is provided for permanent, full-time team members who are the primary caregiver in the family. Following the start of a fostering event, team members are eligible to receive up to one week (five working days) of leave per fostering event. In the case where the fostering event becomes an adoption, Parental leave would then apply.
