We are updating our maternity leave policy. Can you please share how your company/firms pay your employees for their leave?

I would suggest naming it to parental leave, and not just maternal leave. This will allow folks who are LGBTQ+ who may not be the person that's pregnant, to take leave as well. 12 weeks minimum, but should honestly be 16 weeks. Extend it to people adopting or who have situations where they have to take care of minor that may not be theres (family memeber who may have lost parents for example). I've seen some companies allow folks to take it in chunks, or all at once. This is a great area to show your DEI skills

Great suggestions thank you!

12 weeks paid for mother’s and fathers.

Is this 12 weeks beyond the initial medical leave for mom or does it run concurrent with medical leave?

My last company was 25k people and Swiss owned so 24 weeks paid for primary and 8 weeks paid for secondary.
We allowed for them to customize, so secondary could stagger their days in tandem with the primary as the primary started reintegrating into the workplace again. Etc.

Yes it’s a generous policy but after 4-5 months many started returning part time (2-3 days a week) for the remaining time.

We are in the midst of implementing a parental leave program that will provide 8 weeks for birth parent and 4 weeks for a non birth parent (dad or adoption situation). This is a start from no parental leave. We are located in upper Midwest across and through the Pacific Northwest.

like

17 weeks top up to 100% for primary caregiver. 8 weeks 100% top up for secondary caregivers

We are in Canada- Ontario. So top up means on top of the government EI. Size approx 500

6 weeks paid at full salary and then 12 weeks PFL so 18 total.

We are updating our policy as well. This is great info!

Worked last 12 years for current company. Small family run business to which I am an in-law. I’ve been looking to make a change but the family business situation creates a complex exit strategy. Sat down with owner about one year ago and said I wanted to accept a different job and I was talked out of it. Some nice benefits working here but feel I need a change. Anyone have experience in a similar situation? How can I pull this off delicately?

I just got back to work two weeks ago after my maternity leave. I hated my job before going on leave and it’s even worse now. My company has never respected boundaries and there is this toxic “work you to death” culture. The issue is the benefits and salary are amazing since it’s a huge company. I got an offer from a smaller company that would provide more flexibility, but doesn’t provide the same level of benefits. I want to take the role, but feel guiltily leaving my fancy corporate job.
