16 May Nike to Offer Eight Weeks of Paid Family Leave
Nike has adopted a new paid-family-leave policy offering eight weeks of paid family leave to the parents of newborns, adopted or permanently placed children, as well as eight weeks of paid leave to workers caring for a sick relative.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the policy is open to full-time U.S.-based Nike employees working 30 or more hours a week, including retail employees and U.S. workers on international assignment. This marks the first time Nike will include fathers in its paid family leave and extends benefits to expanding families of different types. The new policy will be offered in addition to an existing short-term disability benefit offering a minimum of six weeks’ paid leave to women giving birth.
