Wells Fargo will begin offering paid parental leave for the first time, joining other large U.S. banks that have recently upped their benefits.

The San Francisco-based bank told employees Wednesday it will provide up to 16 weeks for a primary caregiver and up to four weeks for a nonprimary caregiver following a birth or adoption. The benefit, available to Wells Fargo’s full- and part-time employees in the U.S., takes effect June 1.
