Infographic — Baby Benefits: Is Your Company Offering Enough Maternity Leave?

Despite the long history of fighting for workers’ rights in this country and the cultural buzz around “family values,” the U.S. actually offers some of the weakest paid family leave benefits in the world. Though some individual states offer employees guaranteed paid family leave, a majority of new parents in the American workforce do not have many options for taking a leave. Paid leave is an important benefit that should be strongly considered by employers to promote employees’ personal and familial well-being. Below, we explore the research on paid family leave and its importance to the workforce.

    I find it interesting that Canada is not on the list with 50 weeks of access to unemployment insurance benefits.

    And americans feel sorry for our tax levels… this is only one of many benefits that we reap.

    Normal is also that we do not use all the days in a row but instead only take out days during bankdays. This way they will actually last for 2 years! (but with a lower income rate). Futhermore the laws stipulate that the employer never can turn you down when you want to use the days, and it is possible to save days up until the child is 8 years.

    I am really looking forward to my paternity leave as well as saving days for extra long vacations the upcoming years. Then we will probably have our next child…
