12 weeks maternity leave available
You have to take your own vacation days for maternity and paternity leave - government does not grant you additional time for childcare. The government's approach to family leave is woefully antiquated.
I believe that DoD is a leader in maternity and paternity leave. Paternity leave was recently extended, but each service component has its own specific rules and regulations.
Both Maternity and Paternity leave exist in the DoD.
Males and females are entitled. Never used it so can't comment
It is offered, but the leave is not offerednas paid. There is an opportunity to requr leave donations, disability or non pay status. Having a newborn is hard in itself, moms n dads should not be penalized for procreating
no where near how long it should be. women get 2 weeks paid. that's it. they have the option for unpaid up to 6 months
I know very little governing Maternity leave (i am a male). Paternity leave only consists of 10 days (including weekend). This is extremely disproportionate to maternity leave which can be up to several months.
Well there is no Paternity leave and you have to be employed for a year before using Family Medical Leave which includes taking care of your newborn.
Can take as much vacation days that you have on the books and take sick leave if additional days are needed.
