With no federal mandates—and only four states offering public funding—paid parental leave is almost always provided at the employer’s discretion, many of whom opt out entirely. But is this ostensibly cost-cutting measure really benefiting companies? Now with tech leaders like Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Yahoo’s Marissa Mayer starting families and balancing work and children, how will they set the tone for companies? This infographic provides an overview of the state of paid parental leave in the US—and why employers can’t afford to not offer it.
