Work-Life Balance? Does Your Company Care? It Should. (August 28, 2015)
By Joyce E.A. Russell, The Washington Post
Recently, there have been a number of stories that have come out highlighting practices at companies that have or have not reinforced having both a job and a family (life). Take the recent announcement by Netflix where it began offering employees who are new parents unlimited paid leave for a year, allowing them to take off as much time as they want during the first 12 months after a child’s birth or adoption. They can return on a full- or part-time basis, and even take additional time off later in the year if needed. The company said they would keep paying them normally, eliminating the need to switch to disability leave.
