Top-Up Benefit

TunnelBear Inc. will provide eligible staff with 100% top-up for the first 8 weeks of pregnancy and/or parental leave, and 60% for the following 8 weeks.

This parental leave benefit will apply to full time employees that have worked for at least six consecutive months at TunnelBear in a full-time position. Employees must also be eligible to receive maternity/parental benefits as established by Service Canada.

This policy applies to the biological, adoptive, or legally recognized parents while they are caring for their newborn or newly adopted child. Any situations not covered under the maternity/parental leave provision by Service Canada, will be reviewed by TunnelBear on a case by case basis.

We will also ensure that your medical benefits will remain active for the duration of the pregnancy and/or parental leave (up to 52 weeks) to ensure the coverage of incurred medical expenses. Vacation will continue to accrue and employee stock options will continue to vest.
