5 Unbelievable Employee Benefits That Really Exist


Botox Leave

A London-based ad agency, Fox Kalomaski, gives workers an extra paid day off in December for pre-holiday-party beauty treatments. The firm, which introduced this perk in 2009, dubbed it "Botox Leave" after execs heard that, rather than spending the day getting haircuts or facials, a large number of their employees were actually using it to receive Botox injections [source: Business Management Daily].

Botox Leave is part of a trend among U.K. employers toward giving employees time off for cosmetic procedures so they don't falsely claim sick days instead. Companies are granting employees anywhere from a few hours off to an entire day, as Fox Kalomaski does [source: Plastic Surgery Practice].
