Enhancing Adoption, Fertility, Surrogacy & Nursing Mother Benefits
At Johnson & Johnson, we are firmly committed to living Our Credo – by respecting the dignity of our employees, fostering a workplace culture of health and providing equal opportunity for everyone.
Our avid support for the 21st Century working family – no matter what shape that family takes – is critical to our workplace culture of health. Last year, we announced a significant upgrade to our parental leave policy in the United States. Moms who give birth can take up to 17 weeks of paid leave during the first year of birth. All new parents – maternal, paternal, adoptive or surrogacy-assisted – can take eight weeks of paid leave during the first year of the family’s new addition. When it comes to supporting our employees, our work is never done.
That’s why today, I’m thrilled to share that we are enhancing the benefits we offer for adoption and fertility, and are introducing brand-new benefits for surrogacy and nursing mothers. We recognize that family planning is an expensive, sometimes stressful proposition, and these policies cement our effort to assist more J&J employees as they endeavor to build a family.
