 Paid Maternity Leaves in 2019 #infographic

The United States has no good reputation when opposed to other top economic forces when it comes to balancing work-life or social care. When these two questions come together, it is exactly that which is the problem of paid parental leave, so it is safe to say that America does not lead the rest of the world. It is the secret to understanding what kind of paid parental leaves the employers offer when it comes to having children. It is important to recognize your rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act, too. There is a need to look at the information: How much paternity and maternity leave do American companies offer?

21.6 percent of the initial 2,790 respondents suggested that their employers offered new parental leave for childbirth or adoption. 65.8% of the majority of respondents work in large corporations with 250 or more jobs. The other 16.4% work for small firms with 1 to 49 workers, and 17.8% work for medium-sized firms with 50 to 249 employees.

For four weeks or more, many respondents said their employers were giving paid maternity leaves. While 10.5 percent reported having less than two weeks, 13.5 percent reported 2-4 weeks, 26.6 percent reported 4-6 weeks, 25.5 percent reported 6-8 weeks, and 23.9 percent reported 8+weeks. The same status applies to Paternity Leaves, which most said their organization has been providing Paid Paternity Leaves for four weeks or more.17 per cent of respondents said they did not provide their businesses with Paid Paternity Leaves. 13.6 per cent gets less than two weeks, 18.4 per cent gets up to 2-4 weeks, 21.4 per cent gets 4-6 weeks, 14.5 per cent gets 6-8 weeks, 15.0 per cent gets 8 + weeks and 17.0 per cent say they don't get paternity leaves.

55 per cent of the respondents said their companies paid employees 100 per cent of their wages during maternity leave. Though 50 percent of respondents said they paid 100 percent of their salary while Paternity leaves their businesses. 78.1 percent said the amount charged for paternal leaves does not depend on whether or not they are considered primary or secondary caregivers.

Most respondents said the company offers them extended paid leave for certain cases, that is, 49.2 percent for c-section, 32.1 percent for multiple births and 37.7 percent for premature births. Significant numbers of respondents said their employers offer new parents flexible hours when they can return from their leave in the form of adjusted work hours (49.6%), work from home days (32.2%), and the remainder fewer working hours (26.6%). The other 56.2 per cent of the female respondents said their office had a dedicated lactation or wellness space.

In this report, 21.6 percent of workers said their companies offer paid leave policy, while 65.8 percent of respondents who work for big business with more than 250 employees said their businesses are more generous with leave than smaller firms. The most commonly offered leave was for 4 to 6 weeks (26.6% of businesses), with only 10.5% offering less than two weeks. These are not ideal figures as it will take months and months to recover from birth and support your wife but all has to start from somewhere. Although it has its drawbacks, this survey reveals many U.S. firms offering MATERNITY and PATERNITY leave paid to their workers.
