Who's Your Daddy? Amazon Offers New Pops Paid Leave
Amazon announced that new dads employed at Amazon will now be eligible for paid time off.
Women (mothers) employed by Amazon can currently take up to four weeks of paid time off before they give birth and another ten weeks afterwards. That same parental leave availability has not been the same for men.
Amazon's new rules add six weeks of paid parental leave for all new parents.
The benefits will apply to all full-time hourly and salaried employees, including workers at Amazon fulfillment centers.
