    I believe it is up to 6 months for maternity and 1 month for paternity.

    Amazing maternity pay! They just added 6 weeks paid parental time off. So fathers can use the 6 weeks and mother’s can add 6 weeks to their 6 week maternity pay and be paid for a total of 12 weeks leave.

    Fathers get no time paid, and mother's must use STD.

    Best thing is they have it still available . The worst part is it's not long enough.

    Maternity leave was 6-8 weeks paid and then up to 6 months unpaid. I think this fluctuates with different departments.

    really I have no idea about maternity and paternity leave benefits, although as a contract employee I feel that Merck gives great attention to women issues and health, the employees are very active on women heath
