Microsoft to require suppliers to offer workers paid parental leave

Microsoft to require suppliers to offer workers paid parental leave
Microsoft's U.S. suppliers will be required to provide their workers with paid parental leave, the tech giant announced. Company officials said the benefit, as an extension of its paid time off (PTO) policy, is recognition of the contribution suppliers' employees make to Microsoft's success. The company required suppliers to offer their employees PTO three years ago. Suppliers must offer their employees at least 12 weeks of paid parental leave, up to $1,000 a week. The change applies to all suppliers' employees who take off time for the birth or adoption of a child. Suppliers with 50 or more workers that do substantial work for Microsoft must comply with the change. The new requirement doesn't replace state laws with more generous paid parental leave provisions or prevent suppliers from expanding their paid parental benefits, Microsoft noted. The move comes ahead of family leave legislation in Washington state that will go into effect in 2020. Microsoft said it opted to move before that to ensure that "thousands of valued contributors outside of Washington" aren't left behind.
