Before you get too excited, this leave is for employees at the Scandinavian pet food company, Musti Group. Roughly 90% of the company’s 1500 employees have pets, and now they can get three days of paid leave when they adopt a new four-legged family member.
Musti CEO David Ronnberg, now everyone’s dream boss, says, “Adopting a pet is a significant decision and changes everyday life considerably. We want to support our employees during their first days with the new family member and ensure that they can enjoy those precious moments to the fullest.”
Meanwhile, here in the US, where only 12% of workers get paid paternity leave, don’t hold your breath for pawternity leave.
