Paternity Leave Is Increasingly Common

Paternity Leave, Father Son Bonding

Paternity leave is a trending topic in the business world. In fact, many companies are expanding existing parental leave programs to address the needs of adoptive parents, same-sex parents, and many other families. Just this week, Amazon announced a new paid paternity and maternity leave policy—six weeks for dads, twenty weeks for moms. Parental leave programs are important benefits and help improve employee satisfaction, company loyalty, and long-term employee retention.

“Amazon’s new policy follows similar announcements by big tech companies like Microsoft, Netflix, and Adobe, all of which recently significantly improved their family leave policies. And it’s significant that huge, extremely wealthy companies are taking steps to improve work-life balance for new parents, especially because the U.S. is still the only developed country in the world that doesn’t federally mandate paid maternity leave.” (The Verge, Lizzie Plaugic)

Though these benefits have traditionally been associated with corporate work environments, many other organizations are discovering the benefits of parental leave programs. Baseball players and other professional athletes have all had the opportunity to celebrate the arrival of a new child into the family. A DNA paternity test can help provide the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you are celebrating for the right reason.

Something to Celebrate

The arrival of a new baby is a cause for celebration. However, even this happy occasion can come with some serious questions. Men might be hesitant to take time off work if they suspect the child is not theirs. If you are asking yourself any of the following questions, a DNA paternity test might be able to help:

  • Am I completely sure of her loyalty?
  • Does this child look like my other children?
  • What does this mean to my tax situation?
  • What kind of child support do I have to provide?
