Putting Loved Ones First
Maternity & Paternity Leave
Whether you are expecting, fostering or adopting a child, you deserve to take time to care for your child without having to risk your economic security. With proper documentation, you may be eligible for 8 weeks of Paid Family Leave.
Caring for a Loved One
The time you spend caring for a loved one with a serious health condition is critical, whether it be a child, parent, parent-in-law, grandchild, grandparent, spouse or domestic partner.
Paid Family Leave enables loved ones to spend time with those called to active military service and alleviates the pressure of working and caring for a child while a loved one is away.
