More Companies Are Offering Paid Time Off to ‘Settle In’ New Pets

If you’re an animal lover, you might want to move across the pond. A new survey found almost one in 20 UK employees can take paid leave to care for and “settling in” new pets.

Referred to as “paw-ternity leave,” the amount of time varies. Some companies offer a few hours while others employees can take off for weeks at a time. Greg Buchanan, who owns a Manchester, England based IT company, allows his employees three weeks paid leave when they get a new animal friend. And this is IN ADDITION to whatever vacation time they already have.

“I find being flexible with my staff when it comes to their animals makes them loyal and hardworking,” Buchanan explains. “Pets are like babies nowadays so why shouldn’t staff have some time off when they arrive?” So far, there isn’t any concrete data on US companies and their paw-ternity policies.
