Hey working moms and dads, just because Yahoo employees are getting more generous parental leave benefits doesn’t mean you should expect those perks, too.
Under Yahoo’s new policy, new moms who give birth are eligible for up to 16 weeks of paid maternity leave, with benefits. New dads can get up to eight weeks of paid paternity leave with benefits, according to Yahoo.
The new parents also get $500 to spend on housecleaning and other needs, according to the new policy made public Tuesday.
The policy basically doubles the amount of leave that many new moms who work at Yahoo will receive after pregnancy, according to NBCBayArea.com .
That's a pretty nice maternity leave package! What is yours like? How long will you be taking off after baby arrives?
