Received an offer to lateral to a big firm. The benefits package includes health, dental, disability etc. but no mention of their parental leave policy. I don’t recall my current job spelling that out either in my offer. Im not planning on having kids in the immediate future but I am curious of the policy at the new firm. Fair question to ask or will it scare them if I do?

Given you already have the offer, I think it’s fair game to ask. I’m in a similar position (offer letter didn’t mention fringe benefits or certain policies eg wfh), so I’ve been following up directly with their internal HR person on these items so that I can “evaluate the full offer.” Haven’t met any resistance or concern so far.

I’ve seen this info included in a benefits brochure, not the offer letter. I wouldn’t be afraid to ask now that you have the offer in hand. A firm withdrawing an offer after asking about leave is a huge liability for a discrimination lawsuit.

I mean we have had people specifically ask to speak with working parents when deciding on whether to accept an offer and thought nothing of it. I’d think asking for a leave policy would be pretty standard today.

Filed a complaint in early May, they filed a motion to dismiss timely, and I responded in a timely fashion as well. During my research on the motion to dismiss I realize that I had cited a section of the statute that I now feel applies less than a different section.

What is my duty to the court? I do feel that both sections of the statute can likely apply, and admittedly the section that applies better I feel has a lower burden of proof.
