Mad Mex opens new paid parental leave program
It will provide work leaves for primary and secondary carers.
Mexican fast food firm, Mad Mex, is providing a paid parental leave program for its primary and secondary carers at their corporate restaurant team.
The entitlements for these carers include six weeks at full salary or 12 weeks at half salary whilst the secondary carer can avail one week’s leave at full pay.
It is available to every corporate part- or full-time employee that worked with Mad Mex for 12 months.
Once the carer is ready to return, Mad Mex will also coordinate with them to “provide the flexibility they need to juggle the joint responsibilities.”
“This kind of program is relatively unusual in the QSR space, but we felt it was important we provide this support for our familia,” Mad Mex CEO Clovis Young said in a statement.
“Mad Mex is a place that people can build careers in, from working the grill in a Restaurant, to managing Restaurants and on to the executive team. To be that we need to invest in our people and do right by them as they go through key stages in their personal lives too,” Young added.
