Webinar Recording: Paid Parental Leave

DMEC Online EducationResources, VEF Archives

The United States is the only major industrialized nation that does not provide paid parental leave to workers. Paid maternity and/or paternity leave has begun to gain traction with three states offering some form and pending legislation in over 20 other states and the federal government. In addition, many employers have begun to offer this benefit to their workforce in the absence of state or federal requirements. Employers are developing their own approaches with a growing number offering their own form of paid maternity, paid paternity, or paid adoption leave with high tech companies leading the charge. This session provided helpful information on the structure and administration of this benefit. DMEC survey results are leveraged to showcase the growing trend.
