Fun Fact: Paw-ternity Leave
More firms in Great Britain are giving staff paid time off at work when they get a new pet. Almost one in 20 new pet owners in the U.K. has been offered so-called “paw-ternity leave” by their employer, according to new research by pet insurance provider Petplan.
Some firms allow workers to take a few hours off to settle in a new household animal, while others offer as much as several weeks of paid time off.
