Any luck negotiating Parental leave with a new job? I am expecting an offer but my SO is expecting and according to new company's policy, I'm eligible after 1 year of service but will only have like 6months by the time the baby comes. They have a generous leave policy, just not sure if I should talk about it now or wait until closer to the due date?

Literally just went to post this. Same boat. Congrats to you both!

How big is the company? Larger the harder to negotiate any standard benefits. However you can think about doing part-time for a couple months once the baby is born or something that isn’t cutting out fully for several months. Either way, I’d present the question to HR as a generic question about whether certain benefit vesting schedules are flexible, then have the talk with your manager after you have a couple months of solid track record in the new role

Tell the hiring manager about it. I doubt the hiring manager would not try to work it out with you. The only issue I could see is if you plan to take more than 8 weeks right away. Also try to work it out with them too.

One enormous key to success involves inviting parents to be a part of your plan and program. Many parents fear that their child will quit school or choose an alternate path.
