Australia: Coles Supermarket Will Give Trans and Gender Fluid Staff 10 Extra Paid Leave Days
Coles Supermarket in Australia announced this week that employees undergoing gender reassignment surgery will get an extra 10 days of paid leave.
This is part of their new inclusion policy.
Coles supermarket has announced that team members undergoing gender affirmation will now be entitled to up to 10 days paid gender affirmation leave.
The retail giant said the policy change was an important step in its commitment to champion inclusion in the workplace.
“We know that we have at least 900 team members who identify as transgender or gender diverse,” Coles Chief Legal and Safety Officer and chair of the Coles Pride Steering Committee David Brewster said.
“We need to have proper policy and education in this area so there is clear guidance around taking leave for this important transition in their life.
“Our Pride network has grown significantly over the past year, and we have Pride committees in every state, driving activity and engagement at a local level.”
