AutoNation provides a paid maternity benefit for Associates to recover from the effects of childbirth. This coverage is provided at no cost to the Associate through Matrix Absence Management and provides 100% of eligible pay for six weeks if vaginal delivery or eight weeks for cesarean.

How is the benefit amount determined?
Your benefit amount is determined based on your Eligible Pay.

What is Eligible Pay?
Eligible Pay is determined once a year and is based on your earnings from the previous year (August 1 through July 31), before taxes and pay deductions. (For example, your 2024 Eligible Pay is based on your earnings from August 1, 2022 through July 31, 2023). If you have not been continuously employed for the full measurement period, a midpoint for your job code will be used.
