Now this is what you call an Amex reward – 5 months of paid leave for both mothers and fathers.
2017 begins with an exciting announcement for mums and dads working with financial services leader American Express. They will receive 5 months of paid parental leave policy. Plus, women who give birth and require medical leave will get another six to eight weeks.
The offer is also available to part-time American Express employees.
Till now, the company has offered six weeks of paid leave to the primary parents, and six to eight weeks to birth mothers needing medical leaves. Fathers got just 2 weeks.
Parents will also get a 24-hour lactation consultant, and mothers travelling on business trips will be able to ship breast milk to their infants home for free. A ‘Parent Concierge’ will give expecting parents information about the Amex suite of family benefits. Employees can also receive up to $35,000 for adoption or surrogacy for up to two children, or opting for infertility treatments.
