    To be honest I have never taken maternity or parental leave. Therefore I am unable to answer the question. I know that it is good because they permit you take 16 weeks with pay.

    It is extremely useful when one has a new borne. Also, options for those who wish to adopt. Time is provided for that as well. A very progressive policy

    Industry standard. More national institutions and private businesses of international standing need to progress on this front. It is difficult to understand or explain why this is still unfinished business.

    They offer excellent time off for both maternity and paternity leave. You can break up the time.
