Last week, online streaming (and DVD delivery) company, Netflix, announced a new maternity and paternity leave policy that has been a long time coming.
They are offering new parents unlimited paid leave for the first year after the birth or adoption of a child. First of all, paid leave is phenomenal.
Paid leave for a year is something I can’t even imagine. So many parents cut their leave short or don’t take a leave because they simply can’t afford to be out that additional paycheck.
