Microsoft offering salaried US employees unlimited time off

Microsoft is giving its U.S. employees unlimited time off.

The new policy – which starts next week – applies to all salaried, but not hourly workers.

Microsoft will offer 10 company holidays, leaves of absence, sick and mental health days and time away for jury duty or bereavement in addition to the unlimited time off.

Employees who have an unused vacation balance will get a one-time payout in April.

LinkedIn – which is owned by Microsoft – Salesforce, Oracle and Netflix offer similar policies.
