    I think there’s opportunity to do more here. They offer 2 weeks paid bonding time. Nice, and opportunity to offer more.

    One week paid leave for mums or dads. Then, for mums, short term disability pays for 5 (if it's a c-section you get 8 weeks). Sadly you must use one full week of vacation BEFORE short term disability kicks in. If mum's take FMLA (12 weeks) and also the Connecticut leave (which allows for another 4 weeks out), mums will need to pay for the full cost of insurance during the unpaid weeks.

    Maternity leave, no paternity leave (yet). Will be interesting to see if paternity leave becomes standard as some tech firms lead the way. People that have used maternity leave have not been happy with the system and how the process works.
