Parental leave was once considered a benefit for women who had given birth, but is now a common organizational policy that may also apply to same-sex couples and adoptive parents. Ensure your policies comply with statutory minimums and compare them to typical market practice.
Many companies simply rely on current laws and have not further expanded their paid-time off benefits. Other companies have filled the void with additional paid or unpaid leave for mothers and fathers to care for newborn children. Find out whether companies are providing the statutory minimums or going above and beyond to provide additional time off and/or pay to their employees.
