KUALA LUMPUR: In conjunction with International Women’s Day Wednesday, Malayan Banking Bhd (Maybank) will offer extended maternity leave of up to 365 days for eligible female employees.
“The enhancement to the existing 90-days maternity leave policy is yet another feature of our commitment to the banks diversity and inclusion agenda,” Nora said in a statement Wednesday.
In addition to the existing 90-days maternity leave policy with full pay, the new policy would allow an employee to apply for an additional maternity leave period of three months with half-pay and a further six months with no pay.
Meanwhile, Maybank has also rolled out a sabbatical leave policy for all its staff members whereby eligible employees are allowed to take a career break for a minimum of three months to a maximum of 24 months. – Bernama
