Our general rule of thumb is “if you need time off - take time off.” Just make sure you’re communicating with your manager when you plan to be out.

Vacation Leave: Take what you need. So, what’s the catch? There isn’t one. Taking breaks is important, and we encourage Fools step away whenever they need to recharge.

Sick Leave: If you’re under the weather, do us all a favor and stay home. And don’t worry – you’ll still get paid.

Holidays: We follow the New York Stock Exchange’s schedule of nine paid Holidays.

Maternity and Paternity Leave: We offer 16 weeks paid leave for Foolish moms and dads (and a ton of other benefits, too).

Peternity Leave: Not a typo. Take up to a week off to spend at home with a new pet.

Birthdays: We also want you to celebrate one other special occasion: the day that changed your parents' life forever...your birthday! So take the day off and treat yourself.
