Target Expanding Parental Leave and Other Childcare Benefits for Workers

The popular retailer Target has announced that it will be expanding parental leave and other childcare benefits for its workers.

The move comes months after Target also announced that they will raise their wages to a $15/hr minimum. Among the benefits provided will be an affordable backup care program for parents whose child caretakers are unable to work for the day due to illness or some other type of emergency.

The company said employees welcoming a new child will also  “receive double the amount of paid time off to care for their newest family member,” which it added is “on top of the medical leave a team member receives after giving birth to a baby.”
