Sands China is implementing a paid paternity leave policy for eligible team members, effective from February 16, the gaming operator announced in a statement yesterday.
Male team members who have contributed at least one year of service to the company will be eligible for five consecutive days of paid paternity leave, to be taken within 30 days after the birth of their child.
Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China, said, “We strive to address the needs of our team members, so we’re very pleased to announce this new paid paternity leave policy, acknowledging the important role of fathers in the family.”
“With this new policy, fathers of new-borns will have time to be with their families to enjoy this important milestone of life and to support them, helping maintain a harmonious family life,” he added.
