At least some Costco employees who are above the age of 65 have been quietly offered two additional weeks of paid time off amid the coronavirus outbreak.
Business Insider spoke to five Costco employees from the East Coast, Illinois, Texas, and Utah who said that employees above the age of 65 in their stores were given the option to take leave with two weeks of pay during the outbreak. These employees, whose identities were made known to Business Insider, were granted anonymity in order to speak frankly about the situation at Costco.
Costco has not announced any additional paid sick time for its employees under 65, though the warehouse store is currently paying its employees an extra $2 an hour for their work during the coronavirus outbreak. Other retailers like Walmart and Starbucks have also changed their benefits policies amid the pandemic.
