Must take short-term disability.
Since Covidien was bought out by Medtronics, the policies have improved. We from no paternity leave to paid paternity (about 5 days) and maternity leave went from 80% pay to 100% pay for the first 8 weeks.
The Covidien policy for MPL is in line with industry standards and is encouraged to take full allotted time.
Not had to use this benefit to date. Not sure how it compares to any other company's programs. they don't seem to condemn you when you need to take it.
Pretty standard, in line with state and federal law
It is a great help... full paid time off for the mommies............
