Paid parental leave has become one of the most talked about issues in 2015. Netflix just revised its already expanded policy to offer between 12-16 weeks off to its hourly workers.
Other tech companies have amended their policies this year, too. Adobe changed its benefits to increase paid leave for its U.S. staff. Spotify followed suit, expanding paid leave to six months to better align with government-mandated measures in its home country of Sweden. Amazon jumped on the benefits bandwagon as well, inviting speculation that it made its leave policy more generous in the wake of bad press about the company’s cutthroat culture.
