Company Offers Paid Time Off for Break Ups

A small women-only marketing firm in Tokyo is offering its employees heartbreak leave.

"Not everyone needs to take maternity leave but with
heartbreak, everyone needs time off, just like when you get
sick," the CEO says. She’s the one who came up with the idea—it’s scaled according to age, with staff 24 and younger getting one day a year, and those older than 30 getting up to three days of paid leave.

The reason?

"Women in their 20s can find their next love quickly, but
it’s tougher for women in their 30s, and their break-ups tend
to be more serious."
