Time for you, Time for your family.

Boston Scientific’s Leave of Absence program provides you with both paid and unpaid time to help meet your needs and the needs of your family including different type of leave such as:

  • Parental Leave: All new parents working at locations within the EMEA Region will be eligible for a minimum of 18 weeks fully paid leave, to be taken during the first year of the child’s birth or adoption. This policy provides a minimum leave guaranteed by Boston Scientific and does not limit any greater or additional benefits that may be provided under local law or existing policy. If your local country offers a paid leave in excess of this period, you will remain eligible to this legal benefit. The EMEA Paid Parental Leave Policy is available HERE. A country Annex for the Parental Leave Policy is available HERE.

  • Vacation time/Holiday is managed through a specific process and any request should be made via the FIGGO online portal. To find more information on vacation, please refer to the Work flex, Vacation, and Holiday section.
