“To help employees balance their work and family priorities, Busboys and Poets Company offers up to four weeks of Paid Parental Leave to eligible parents after the birth of a child or adoption. The purpose of paid parental leave is to enable employees to care for and bond with a newborn or a newly adopted child. Our Parental Leave Policy exceeds any legal requirements, it’s the right thing to do and critical for all parents and families. We also offer Paid Vacation to eligible employees and Sick Leave to everyone. Everyone, including employees who are classified as part time hourly employees, get paid when they’re sick. As a small business, we care deeply about our employee and understand the importance of supporting them as whole people, whether that is through the joy of a new child or the hardship of a personal or family illness. The FAMILY Act is an important enhancement to the society, and it will be particularly impactful in helping small businesses provide inclusive and comprehensive benefits in an affordable way. Paid time to care is one of the most important ways we support our employees’ families at the most important moments in their lives.”
