I’m under the impression that holidays, sick days, and parental leave are on average much less generous in the US compared to Europe or Canada. What are your policies on time off work?
We’re in the process of reviewing our policies, but we’re likely to settle on something like 25 paid days off (including sick days), 10 holiday days (with the option to work on holidays and use the paid time off elsewhere), several months of paid parental leave, and a flexible unpaid leave policy for people who want to take more time off. We are also flexible with respect to working from home.
To clarify, are the 10 holiday days part of the 25 paid days off, or in addition to?
Or by ‘holiday days’ do you mean statutory holidays like Thanksgiving?
Yes, I mean statutory holidays like Thanksgiving.
It is still unclear to me whether the statutory holidays are supposed to be included in the 25 days paid days off or in addition to.
In addition to, 35 days total. (I work at Open Phil.)
