Pre- and postnatal leave and parental leave at Kaufland e-commerce
If you want to have a career as well as a family, you’re in the best hands at Kaufland e-commerce. As an employer, we deeply value every employee’s well-being and personal fulfilment. When it comes to family planning, it’s a given for us to follow all of the legal requirements for parental well-being and leave, both before and after birth; on top of that, we strive to make the process as smooth as possible for employees in every position. Here is the general framework:
- Pre- and postnatal leave applies six weeks before and eight weeks after the baby’s estimated due date
- As set out by German law, mothers can apply for parental leave at their own discretion for the time period after the birth, and can adjust the length of their leave at any time within the legal requirements
- Fathers can apply for leave for the time around the estimated due date, and for parental leave later, however they decide is best
What is important for us is that parents can take time flexibly, in a way that meets their needs, while feeling they are fully supported, no matter which career level they are currently at.
