Philippines: Johnson & Johnson increases maternity leave benefit from 60 to 98 days
"J&J levels up leave benefits," 24 September 2017
As part of its commitment to be an employer of choice, Johnson & Johnson rolled out enhanced maternity and paternity leave packages for its employees...
...Mothers...can now enjoy a paid leave of 14 weeks, or 98 days, to spend time with their newborn, adding a significant number to the statutory 60 days for those who underwent normal delivery, and 78 for those recovering from caesarean delivery.
...The company’s expanded paternity benefit now allows them, from the statutory seven working days, eight weeks to spend time helping in their spouse’s recovery while also bonding with their newborn child.
The same goes for couples who would like to adopt—they are given eight weeks, once adoption documents have been completed...
The company’s new parental leave policy, which will be rolled out in 2018 across its offices globally, is a direct result of feedback it received from last year’s Global Benefits Survey.
