Litigation News for the Global Financial Community


Your employee has shared her good news - she is having a baby! She immediately wants to know how much time off she is allowed and how much of that time will be paid. At a minimum, your company must have a parental leave policy that complies with applicable law. A more generous leave policy will help your company attract and retain  talent. Creating a parental leave policy that is right for your business is a complicated, yet important task.

What is Parental Leave?
Parental leave has two parts: (i) pregnancy-related medical leave; and (ii) parental bonding leave. The first type is limited to women who give birth, while parental bonding leave must be offered to both men and women equally. Failing to provide sufficient leave time, or offering leave in a discriminatory manner, can result in a disgruntled employee filing a lawsuit.

It has become increasingly common for employers to offer remote work arrangements to employees who work from home in states outside of the state where the employer’s offices are located. These arrangements can be beneficial to both employees and businesses alike. Employees get additional flexibility and save the time and money associated with commuting. Employers expand their available talent pool while saving money on office space and supplies. New technology has made it possible for employees to work from home without sacrificing productivity and accessibility. However, prior to hiring remote workers, there are various legal and practical implications that employers should consider.
