Time with your new loved one is precious: take some time away from work to enjoy every minute of it.
Snowflake offers paid Maternity and Parental Leave benefits to eligible employees to allow them time off for pregnancy delivery, and to bond with and take care of a new child at home. This policy is applicable to children brought into the home through birth, adoption, or foster placement.
For more information please review the Leave of Absence (LOA) Toolkit.
Birthing parents are eligible for up to 26 weeks of paid parental leave, which is job-protected time off. This includes the pregnancy disability time off for delivery and recovery, plus the time off for baby bonding. Baby bonding may be used all at once or on an intermittent basis before the baby’s first birthday. You must use baby bonding time off in at least two-week increments.
Non-birthing parents are eligible for up to 12 weeks of paid parental leave, which is job-protected time off. You can use these 12 weeks all at once, or on an intermittent basis before the baby’s first birthday, or within one year of the date of adoption or foster placement. You must use it in at least two-week increments.
You will receive 100% of base pay through a combination of Snowflake short-term disability (for the birthing parent only), local paid family leave income, and Snowflake top-up pay.
