Time Away From Work

Engine running too hot lately? Tires feeling a little soft? It might be time to pull off the highway, kick back, and take a break. At K-C, we know that happy, relaxed, and well-rested employees produce better results. That’s why we provide employees with paid time away from work and paid Company holidays.

Time Off

If you’re hired before Dec. 1, you’re eligible for vacation in your first year (amount varies by hire date). In the first full year of employment, you receive two weeks of vacation. Additional weeks of vacation are earned based on years of employment at K-C.

We provide paid holidays, along with the option to purchase up to 40 hours of "Flex Day" time per year (salaried only), starting Jan. 1 of the first full year of employment.

Emergency Leave is provided for when you must be away from work due to unexpected personal needs.

K-C offers 4 weeks of Parental Leave to new parents. This particular time off can be used during the first 12 months of birth, adoption, or foster placement.
