Hi there! We currently offer 8-12 weeks of parental leave for our full-time employees in California. We coordinate with the CA state Paid Disability Leave/Paid Family Leave policies to offset some of the cost (~60% of salary for 6-10 weeks of that time) and we cover the other 40% to make the employee’s salary 100% for the duration of the leave period. We are currently expanding to allow for full-time remote work across the US, and want to offer a similar policy (8-12 weeks of parental leave) but am wondering about solutions others have used to offset some of the cost across states?
I know WA and NY also have paid leave policies so am exploring those, and we could consider a nation-wide short term disability policy, but that would only cover birth mothers for the disability portion of the leave (not non-birth mothers or the family leave portion). Would love to hear any creative solutions other companies with employees in multiple states have employed here!
