    "Paternity leave" is no more than the unpaid FMLA required by law. For "maternity leave," EB will graciously allow you to not eat 40 hours of PTO to cover your first of the six weeks of short-term disability allowed to you to recover from birth. 6-week-old babies require constant care, especially on days when they cluster feed, but if you work at EB, you better be prepared to pay other people to provide that care. Or, you can take your time unpaid, assuming you aren't living paycheck-to-paycheck, the way most working Americans do.

    Company just changed this policy. I am not very familiar with the new policy though. At least we have one though?

    NO PATERNITY LEAVE. Also, if a father and mother both work at the company, unpaid leave is split. Talk about messed up.

    No paid paternity leave. Not too friendly to working mothers.

    Maternity leave is through ŠTD and is very good.
