Parental Leave

No matter how you’re growing your family, Nestlé’s Parent Support Policy gives you the time to focus on your new addition as soon as they arrive.

Overview

Nestlé offers paid time off through the Parent Support Policy and other resources to help you on this exciting (and exhausting) journey.

  • Primary caregivers can take up to 18 consecutive weeks of company-paid leave.
  • Non-primary caregivers can take up to 4 consecutive weeks of company-paid leave.

Eligibility

You can take this leave if you’re a benefits-eligible full-time employee, employed with Nestlé for at least 26 weeks of continuous service, and if you are a:

  • Biological mother or father
  • Adoptive mother or father of a child up to age 18
  • Foster mother or father
  • Spouse or domestic partner with primary or ongoing responsibility of caring for a dependent newborn child

How To Use

To submit a leave request, contact HR at least 30 days prior to your leave start date unless unforeseeable.

No matter who you are or how you’re building your family, we are here to help prepare you:

DID YOU KNOW?

You may be eligible for a phased return during the last 8 weeks.

At certain locations, designated primary caregivers may have the option to return to work on a reduced work schedule for the final eight weeks of caregiver leave. This means both you and your newborn baby can adjust to your return to work.

Breastfeeding Support

If you choose to breastfeed, we have resources to help.
