Sick Time Off Policy

All regular employees are eligible for 7 working days of Sick Time Off each year. Sick Time Off is to be used when you're ill and is not to be used to care for a sick family member.

You accrue Sick Time Off at the beginning of the calendar year with accrual starting over at the beginning of each year. Unused Sick Time Off is not carried over to the following year, and you cannot cash it out. If you're a new hire, your balance is prorated based on your start month.

You may use Sick Time Off for half a day as well, if needed. Apply for Sick Time Off through Workday (page accessible within the PayPal firewall).

Parental leave

Maternity leave

Expectant mothers are eligible for 26 weeks of paid maternity leave.

Paternity leave

As a new father, you can receive 2 weeks of paid paternity leave to be with your family. Take within 6 months of the birth or adoption of a child 12 years old or younger.

Extended paternity leave policy

You may receive an extended paternity leave of up to 1 calendar week for the hospitalisation of mother or newborn due to pregnancy or delivery complexities.

This includes situations such as premature delivery, miscarriage, or any other severe medical condition that arises from the pregnancy and requires hospitalisation.

You are eligible for this leave only after using paternity leave. Similar to paternity leave, extended paternity leave can be used all at once and within a 30-day window from your paternity leave end date. Apply for extended paternity leave through Workday (page accessible within the PayPal firewall).

Adoption leave

Female employees who legally adopt a child who is 12 years old or younger qualify for up to 16 weeks of paid leave.
