Introducing Republic’s Parental Leave Benefit

April 1, 2020

At Republic Services, we are committed to providing you with best-in-class benefits to help make your life easier and more fulfilled. From our drivers to our technicians to our staff supporting our operations all over the country, the work you do is important and valued. We are pleased to offer many ways to reward and recognize you for your efforts and service to our Company.

Starting April 1, we are offering a brand new benefit to help expecting parents at Republic Services at no cost to you or your family. Under the new Parental Leave policy, eligible employees will receive up to eight weeks of paid leave for primary caregivers and up to two weeks of paid leave for secondary caregivers, for births or adoptions on or after April 1, 2020.

Having a new child can be one of the most exciting moments in your family’s life. We’ve heard your feedback in our Republic Listens employee engagement survey about the need for greater support for work-life balance. We hope that this new benefit takes work off your plate so that you can focus on caring for yourself and your new family during this transition.

For more details and information, you can view the training and policy on Inside Republic Services. If you have any questions about the policy or your eligibility or participation, please reach out to your HR partner.
