Sometimes you need time away from work to take care of important personal needs, such as recovering from an illness or injury, caring for a sick family member, or welcoming a new baby into your family.
Even if you aren’t sure you are eligible for a leave (or sure a leave applies to your situation), contact The Hartford, Sysco’s leave management administrator. They’ll answer your questions and tell you which types of leave you may be eligible for, including federal, state and Sysco leave benefits.
Sysco wants to help birth mothers take the time they need to rest and recover after childbirth. As of January 1, 2018, Sysco provides all birth mothers with six (6) weeks of leave with full pay after the birth of their child. Pregnancy leaves are concurrent with Short-term Disability, as well as FMLA leave.
When your family grows with an adoption, Sysco wants to give you time for the adoption process and to welcome your new family member. As of January 1, 2018, Sysco provides all parents of an adopted child with six (6) weeks of leave with full pay during the adoption process. Adoption leaves are concurrent with any FMLA leave the associate chooses to take. If both you and your spouse work at Sysco, you can split the six (6) weeks of paid leave.
Learn more about Leaves of Absence in the FAQs and in the Sysco Policy library, available on The Dish.
*Available to U.S. non-union associates covered by Sysco-sponsored benefits. Note that the Pregnancy and Adoption Leave Benefits are reduced by state disability.
