KPMG provides employees with a generous time-off policy and wide range of leave plans. Time off includes vacation days and scheduled holidays to recharge yourself, as well as paid and unpaid leaves of absences such as parental leave, family medical leave, military and jury duty leaves and others to help employees meet their obligations to themselves, their family, and their community.
Each year the firm publishes a calendar of firmwide holidays to be observed during the year (except where state law provides for additional holidays). A list of all holidays is posted in each operating office.
The firm provides 20, 25, or 30 paid days (eight-hour days) off per year depending on job classification/level and years of service.
Volunteer Time Release Program
Many KPMG employees dedicate their time to community services. To help in these endeavors, KPMG permits employees to take time off through the Volunteer Time Release (VTR) program. This lets employees take up to 12 hours per year during KPMG's normal business hours for volunteer activities.
KPMG recognizes our employees' commitment to the community, including jury service when requested. For full-time employees, the firm provides full salary while on jury service and unable to work regularly scheduled hours.
Leaves of Absence
KPMG provides different Leaves of Absence plans to meet employees' needs. These include Maternity, Medical, Family and Medical Leave Act, Military, General, Educational, Parental, Shared Leave and Personal Leave.
Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
Under the FMLA, employees can receive up to 12 weeks of unpaid time off per year for such situations as the birth, adoption, or placement of a child (including a domestic partner's child) for foster care; their own serious illness; or the serious illness of a close family member for whom they must provide care. For new parents, job protection is extended by the firm to 26 weeks.
Short Term DisabilityKPMG provides Short Term Disability coverage if an employee becomes totally disabled due to an illness or injury and is unable to perform the functions of his/her position.
Long Term DisabilityThe possibility of losing income due to disabling sickness or injury may present a serious need to replace one's income for an extended period of time. The Long Term Disability Plan provides employees with a percentage of their salary after their Short Term Disability ends.
