Publix: The worst paid family leave policy
WE WON! Publix announced in December of 2021 that it is finally going to start providing paid parental leave to all employees. Thank you for advocacy to help win change for 225,000 Publix employees!
While it's a great step in the right direction for Publix to now provide all employees with some paid leave, their policy is unequal -- the amount of paid leave that employees can access will range from 2-6 weeks based on duration of employment, whether the staff person is salaried or hourly, etc. We need to continue fighting so that paid leave is not an elite benefit, and everyone can be there for their families in the moments that matter most.
