Flipkart has rolled out new maternity leave policy which surely has set a benchmark for others.
Flipkart’s maternity policy includes:
- 6 months paid leave
- Post return to work, 4 months of flexi-working hours with full pay
- Extended leave of up to 12 months (without pay)
- Transport reimbursement for 2 months before going on maternity break.
- Dedicated parking spot for 2 months before and after delivery.
This comes at an interesting time when a report stated that India Has The Lowest Score For Acceptance Of Women As Executives and a majority of women leave job post maternity.
