I’m pretty sure any firm holidays are still counted as part of the 16 weeks unfortunately

Yeah I'm due in October and was thinking about this with the Firmwide Holiday shutdown, I'm sure it won't be in addition to the leave

I would think a company wide office closure would fall outside of PTO/MAT leave benefits. No one else is working, so why would you be losing time from your benefits?

If you're using normal PTO, you can take holidays. If you're using employer paid parental leave, you don't get to extend it by excepting holidays from that leave.

Thanks!
