|Please link to or describe your firm's parental leave policy. Be sure to include information on leave for adoption, surrogacy, or other special circumstances.||
Eligible Attorneys may take up to 16 weeks of paid parental leave in a twelve month period in connection with the birth, adoption or foster placement of a child. To be eligible for paid parental leave under this policy, the Attorney must have worked continuously at the Firm, at a level of 60% or more of a full-time schedule, for at least 90 days. Moreover, paid parental leave must be completed within one year following the birth, adoption or foster placement of the child.
In addition to the paid parental leave benefit, attorneys disabled by pregnancy, childbirth or a related condition may be eligible to take Pregnancy Disability Leave and receive up to thirteen weeks of Salary Continuance benefits during that approved leave.
During approved paid parental leave, eligible Attorneys will be paid their base salary for the duration of their leave, subject to coordination with available wage substitution benefits. Attorneys are required to apply for available wage substitution benefits, including through state-administered or other insurance programs. The pay continuation benefit under this policy and any wage substitution benefits will be coordinated such that the Attorney receives their full base salary (and no more) for the duration of the approved paid parental leave.
An Attorney may request to take paid parental leave in a single block, on an intermittent basis, and/or through a reduced work schedule.
