Rent the Runway offers 20 weeks fully paid family leave to all Irish employees

Galway-based fashion circular economy player Rent the Runway has announced that all employees based in Ireland are offered 20 weeks of fully paid leave as part of its gender neutral family leave policy designed to support families.

Any employee that becomes a birth parent, adopts a child, becomes a parent through surrogacy or whose partner is a birth parent after working at Rent the Runway for at least one year, will be eligible to take up to 20 weeks paid family leave commencing in the first year of the child’s birth.

This policy goes above and beyond the current statutory leave policy in Ireland, which allows for 26 weeks maternity leave paid through social welfare at a rate of €245 taxed and two weeks paid paternity leave to parents of a child under one, or during the first year of adoption.
