    Very bad If you both work at Duke only 1 person can get the benefit. YOu have to have 3 weeks of leave saved for Duke to pay for 3 additional weeks. So you have 6 weeks of maternity leave. That is horrible

    Very bad, not enough time off paid, you have to use your own accrued time off and they only provide 3 weeks after you take 3 weeks using you own pto or non paid.

    Duke pays for 3 weeks and the rest is up to the employee's time off accumulation.

    You get three weeks paid immediately after birth of your child. Any additional time off must use accrued paid time off.

    Very flexible leave policy and can be much more generous depending on which department or unit you work in... For example, faculty leave is typically a 16 week semester.

    A little complicated, requires you to use sick days first. May be unpaid.

    While Duke is fairly standard as far as a US based maternity/ paternity leave goes, I feel it's better than many US companies. Obviously FMLA is followed, but beyond that, Duke provides 3 "free" paid weeks of maternity or paternity leave for both adoptions and child births.
