As part of Walmart’s expanded benefits for their associates, they are excited to offer expanded parental and maternity leave, and to provide financial assistance to associates adopting a child. The expanded parental and maternity leave policy provides full-time hourly associates in the U.S. with 10 weeks of paid maternity leave and six weeks of paid parental leave. Salaried associates will also receive six weeks of paid parental leave. These changes will create parity between maternity and parental leave benefits for salaried and fulltime hourly associates. The adoption benefit provides $5,000 per child and may be used for expenses such as adoption agency fees, translation fees, and legal or court costs. Adoption financial assistance will be available to both full-time hourly and salaried associates. Walmart is proud to support their associates and their families with these expanded benefits!
