Do you know of any companies that have paid paternity (parental) leave for new fathers? We are updating our maternity/parental leave policy and are wondering if companies are offering any days outside of what the father can receive through EI.
I didn’t hear any company that pay parental leave.
Our company offers top up for fathers who take parental leave.
We don’t offer a specific parental leave, but employees are able to use accrued sick time &/or vacation time if they choose.
Certain unions within our organization have paid parental leave as part of their collective agreements.
We offer parental leave for non-birth partners – top up at 85 % for up to 5 weeks. Proof of EI payment is required in order to calculate the top up correctly.
We follow the EI model. Staff do have an option to save up vacation time and during busy periods people sometimes rack up lieu time hours which they can save for a moment when they want to use it. One of our team will be doing a paternity leave this summer and he’s got some time from all three sources, EI, vacation & lieu.
