In the employee benefits world, 2016 could very well be called the Year of Parental Leave.

In 2015, Pacific Resources published a white paper that highlighted changing employer attitudes and benefit plans related to parental leaves. Since that initial publication, we have seen many more organizations expand parental leaves as well as continue employee salaries for the duration of some or all of the leave.

We have written an update to the 2015 paper called "Paid Parental Leave: What Employers Need to Consider." This paper outlines the questions employers need to answer, given all the changes to paid parental leave in the past year.

You will learn:

  • If maternity leave-only polices are discriminatory
  • Whether maternity leave is actually a disability
  • What to consider if your company operates in states where paid leave is mandated
  • What the future of paid family leave might look like
