Paid Maternity Leaves in 2019 #infographic

When it comes to balancing work-life or social care, the United States does not have a good reputation as compared to other top economic powers. When these two questions come together, the issue of paid parental leave is precisely that, so it is safe to say that America does not lead the rest of the world. It's the key for workers to know what kind of paid paternal leaves their employers offer when it comes to having children. Understanding your rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act is also imperative. The information needs to be looked at: How much paternity and maternity leave do American Companies offer?

21.6% of the original 2,790 respondents said their companies were offering new parental leave for childbirth or adoption. 65.8 per cent of the majority of respondents work for 250 or more workers in large companies. The other 16.4 per cent work for small companies with 1 to 49 workers, and 17.8 per cent work for medium-sized businesses with 50 to 249 employees.

Many respondents said their employers give paid maternity leaves for four weeks or more. While 10.5 percent said they were having less than two weeks, 13.5 percent recorded 2-4 weeks, 26.6 percent said 4-6 weeks, 25.5 percent said 6-8 weeks, and 23.9 percent said 8 + weeks. The same status extends to Paternity leaves, which the majority said their company offers Paid Paternity Leaves for four or more weeks. 17 percent of respondents said that they did not provide Paid Paternity Leaves to their businesses. 13.6 per cent gets less than two weeks, 18.4 per cent gets up to 2 to 4 weeks, 21.4 per cent gets 4 to 6 weeks, 14.5 per cent gets 6 to 8 weeks, 15.0 per cent gets 8 + weeks and 17.0 per cent say to get no Paternity leaves.

55 per cent of the respondents said that, during maternity leave, their companies paid workers 100 per cent of their salary. Whereas 50 percent of respondents said that during Paternity leaves their companies pay 100 percent of their salary. 78.1 percent said that the amount of paternal leaves charged does not depend on whether they are considered as primary or secondary caregivers or not.

For certain circumstances, many respondents said the company offers them extended paid leave, that is, 49.2 percent for c-section, 32.1 percent for multiple birth, and 37.7 percent for premature birth. A significant number of respondents said that their businesses offer flexible hours for new parents when they can return from their leave in the form of shifted work hours (49.6 percent), work from home days (32.2 percent), and the rest less working hours (26.6 percent). The other 56.2 per cent of female respondents said they had a dedicated lactation or wellness room in their office.

In this study, 21.6 percent of workers said their companies offer paid leave policy, while 65.8 percent of respondents who work for large businesses with more than 250 staff said their firms are more generous with leave than smaller firms. The most commonly offered leave was 4 to 6 weeks (26.6 per cent of businesses), with only 10.5 per cent offering less than two weeks. These are not perfect figures as healing from childbirth and helping your partner will take months and months, but everything has to start from somewhere. Although it has its drawbacks, this survey reveals several U.S. companies give their employees paid MATERNITY and PATERNITY leave.
