REPORT: Walmart announces new sick leave policy, bonuses for hourly workers

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by CBSNEWS.COM:

Retailing giant Walmart is giving hourly workers paid time off in the U.S., nationalizing a policy that conforms with an increasing number of cities and states mandating employers provide paid sick leave.

Starting Saturday, all Walmart store and warehouse workers will be able to accrue as many as 48 hours of what the retailer calls “Protected Paid Time Off,” which differs from regular vacation time and can be used for any reason.

The article goes on to state the following:

Employees will earn an hour for every 30 hours worked, a policy intended to curb absenteeism by giving workers a way to take time off.

Walmart also will begin paying quarterly bonuses based on employee attendance, rather than its previous policy of linking bonuses solely to a store’s performance, the company said.
