I’ve you joined the DC in the last 6 years, it’s not like you’re losing any leave that you can’t get elsewhere. We have the worst parental leave imaginable.

I’m more concerned with starting at a new company and being eligible to take parental leave so soon after starting.

4 kids and a bit of a job hopper here. So most companies require 12 months of employment prior to being eligible for parental leave. The USDC only requires 6 months. So you do need to be careful moving companies in the same year if you plan on using parental leave.

Perfect, this is really helpful.
