Typically there’s a required minimum of employment time/hours worked prior to be granted full parental leave. I’m curious of this as well, I believe you would need to ask for their entire benefits packages and their terms to understand the requirements.

Do you have a sense for what's typical for minimum time? I've heard 3 months. I've also heard 1 year (which seems long to me!)

Congratulations first :) For maternity leave an associate should have just been on payroll for just 80 days as per government policy, don't think parental leave will be any different. You can look up their site for benefits, most companies share the benefits along with your offer letter. Do take good care of you both :)

Not sure who your wife's medical insurance is with either her own or yours, but super important at this time to have that in place. You don't want to switch and then find out that pregnancy is considered pre-existing.

Join amex..you will enjoy 6 months of paternity leave.

Right but how long does one need to be employed at amex to be eligible for 6 months of paid leave? I'm finding that some companies require as much as a year to be eligible

5 years ago I had a crush on a girl. Things were so different then; we used to hang out, talking about things which were utterly random and I loved watching her smile. I ultimately fell for her and we started dating. I spent the best time of my life with her. 1 year ago today, I lost her to COVID. Still, cannot get over her. Looking at the desperation in this bowl, I just want to say - hope you find the one, but this is not the right way. Desperation doesn't appeal anyone.
