Dole is committed to fair and equitable practices for its workers. In all of Dole’s countries of operation, employees receive at least the legally required compensation and benefits; however, it’s more common to find that the Company-provided benefits exceed those stated by law. Additional benefits can include savings and loans programs, paid time off for illness or injury, maternity leave, health insurance, on-the-job training, social assistance, anywhere from one to four months’ extra annual pay, vacation time, retirement plans, severance payment and long-term disability insurance.
Many Dole operations provide rent-free housing for employees, as well as health, sports, social and educational activities for the entire community. The Company is often recognized as an employer of choice by workers and local communities.
