Certainly, a huge company like McDonald’s has family leave for its employees? Actually, for most of its workforce, the fast-food company offers no leave. For some workers who are considered under the corporate umbrella, McDonald's offers full-time moms who just gave birth 10 weeks. Adoptive parents who are the primary caregivers for the child are eligible for two to 10 weeks off if they're full-time, corporate employees.
In comparison, some companies such as Pinterest, which has 1,600 employees, have shown they can have a unique policy plan without ignoring most of their workforce. "Pinterest offers 16 days of paid parental leave. This may seem short; however, Pinterest employees get four additional weeks where they go through Pinterest’s Gradual Return to Work program," says Igor Mitic, who writes for the financial site Fortunly.com. "This program enables employees to choose to work part-time while still getting their full salary."
Plus, the company also offers "adoption assistance, helps their employees successfully go through surrogacy and provides fully furnished lactation rooms in all offices," Mitic says. "Additionally, it offers home birth coverage and one-year paid membership to Urbansitter and family-friendly events."
