Kroger COVID-19 Programs to Protect Workers

05/19/2020

In 2017 the Re-stock Kroger program invested $500 million in personnel over a two-year period.  The company will now add $800 million to boost wages and provide other benefits following the emergence of COVID-19.  This investment includes the Feed Your Future education assistance program for continuing education extending from high school equivalency through to an advanced degree.  Specific benefits associated with COVID-19 include:

  • Free COVID-19 testing based on symptoms

 

  • Emergency leave for those affected by the virus

 

  • Providing PPE

 

  • Requiring customers to wear masks

 

  • Improving the comprehensive healthcare package

 

  • Setting aside $5 million for financial support for economic hardships a result of COVID-19, including child care

 

  • Providing mental health services

 

  • Installing petitions and protective screens for check-out workers

 

  • Encouraging on-line ordering with curbside pickup and home delivery to reduce exposure of workers to potentially infected customers.
