Instacart has announced new updates to its sick leave policies that give more of its workers, including part-time employees, access to sick pay amid the ongoing spread of the novel coronavirus.
Any part-time employees or full-service shoppers diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, or put in mandatory quarantine will now be able to get up to 14 days of pay. That brings Instacart in line with Uber and Lyft, which will similarly be compensating drivers for up to 14 days of pay if they are affected by the novel coronavirus. However, it’s worth noting that this policy will only be available for 30 days from March 9th, according to Instacart’s blog.
