A new trend has emerged on LinkedIn which asks employers to go public with their paid leave policies. It begun last week with a post from New York-based media company theSkimm.
“Employers, it’s time to #ShowUsYourLeave,” the company said in its LinkedIn post. “Skimm’rs have gotten loud about the importance of paid leave. Now we are challenging companies to do the same.”
The Skimm revealed that it provides 18 weeks of paid leave, which includes off days for adoption and fostering of children. The company also said it provides bereavement leave for pregnancy loss and allows employees to have flexible work timings according to their parental schedules.
