Pernod Ricard extends paternity leave to two months across all its entities in France

Press Release 01/07/2021

Pernod Ricard continues to demonstrate its commitment to gender equality and wellbeing at work – both integral parts of its social and environmental roadmap 

Pernod Ricard is pleased to announce the extension of its paternity leave for all employees across its entities based in France to two months, with effect from 1 July 2021.

At a time when statutory paternity leave in France has been increased from 11 to 25 days, Pernod Ricard has taken the decision to further extend this measure, in line with its dual commitment to valuing people and promoting employee equality.

This further step forward will help to promote gender equality between employees, contribute to greater wellbeing at work and encourage a better work / life balance. Everyone will therefore be able to fully enjoy their status as a parent on the arrival of their child.

This measure will apply to the Group’s four French entities, namely its global headquarters in Paris, the companies Martell, Mumm, Perrier-Jouët and Pernod Ricard France, as well as staff from its subsidiary Pernod Ricard EMEA LATAM who are based in France, meaning a total workforce of approximately 2,500 people. 

It will apply to births or adoptions from 1 July 2021.
