Both full- and part-time Publix workers will be eligible for paid parental leave if they welcome children in 2022.
Publix will pay at least two weeks of an employee’s average hours, or up to six weeks of full-time pay, upon the birth or adoption of a child. Length of service and whether the employee is full time or part time, salaried or hourly, determine what the benefit will be.
Publix officials said the new benefit addition was prompted by the grocery giant’s continuing commitment “to being a great place to work.”
“We frequently review our benefits …” said Publix spokesperson Maria Brous.
