Vacation & Holidays
K-C understands the importance of your time away from work so you can focus on what matters most to you and your family. That’s why we offer vacation and personal and company designated holidays to support your work-life balance and wellbeing.
Note: For employees covered by a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), please refer to your CBA for full details on your time off provisions.
If you’re hired before December 1, you’re eligible for vacation in your first year (amount varies by hire date).* The amount of vacation you’re eligible for also depends on your classification. Additional vacation is earned based on years of employment at K-C. Vacation allotment varies for employees scheduled less than 30 hours per week.
