Employee health
Taking care of our employees’ health and wellness is a priority. That’s why we offer medical coverage to all our regular full-time employees, regardless of their level, tenure, or position.

We also offer counseling services that are completely confidential and available 24/7. In addition to this, Amazon employees in India and their eligible dependents can access doctor teleconsultation services with general physicians.

When employees want to take time away from work, they can choose from a variety of time off options available to them, including personal time, leave to accomodate personal emergencies, bereavement, parental leave, and more.

Parental leave
Amazon supports employees throughout all stages of their lives. We celebrate the growth of all our employees’ families through a variety of benefits. We offer up to 26 weeks of leave to birth mothers and 12 weeks for mothers who adopt. Additionally, our parental leave enables up to six weeks of paid parental leave for eligible fathers as per policy. Our Leave Share program allows employees to give six weeks of paid parental leave to a spouse or partner who isn’t eligible for parental leave from their employer. Plus, our Ramp Back program offers birth parents eight consecutive weeks of flexibility and partial work hours as they readjust to work schedules as new parents.
