Life & Family

We know how important family can be, and how important it is to be a part of your community. That's why we offer such robust adoption, child care and long-term care programs, as well as generous giving programs.

Adoption Assistance
Our Adoption Assistance Program reimburses eligible employees for certain expenses incurred in the adoption of a child per child adopted. This benefit is available to non-union (nonagreement) employees.

Child Care/Care Support Services
In the Omaha area, we offer a Child Development Center.

We also recognize employees may need help at home to support work schedules required to run the railroad’s around-the-clock operations. The Bright Horizons Care Advantage™ resource provides employees with access to one of the largest online caregiver databases. Featured services supporting better work-life balance include:

  • Center-based child care
  • Pet care
  • Babysitters and nannies
  • Elder Care
  • Housekeeping
  • Tutoring and homework help

Maternity Leave

Non-union (non-agreement) employees are routinely granted Maternity of six weeks post delivery for a normal delivery and eight weeks post delivery for Cesarean Section under the Company's Short Term Disability policy.

Parental Leave

Non-union (non-agreement) employees not receiving Maternity leave may take Parental leave. Parental leave is a paid leave of up to 2 weeks to actively bond with a child following (1) the birth of an employee’s own child or (2) the placement of a child with an employee in connection with adoption or foster care.


To support your involvement in the community, we offer two programs to enhance employee giving.

  • MoneyPLUS Program – Supports and extends employee financial contributions to qualified 501(c)(3) public charities.
  • TimePLUS Program – Employees who volunteer their individual time may apply for a $250 gift from the company to support the public charity they assist.

These programs are available to both union (agreement) and non-union (nonagreement) employees.
