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.



If you’re hired before December 1, you’re eligible for vacation in your first year (amount varies by hire date). In the first full year of employment, you receive 80 hours of vacation. Additional vacation is earned based on years of employment at K-C. Vacation allotment varies for employees scheduled less than 30 hours per week.
