SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

Parental leave benefits. Requires the Department of Human Resource Management (the Department) to implement and administer 12 weeks of paid parental leave benefits for a state employee who becomes the parent of a child either by adoption or by birth of a child. To be eligible, an employee must be a full-time employee with at least one year of continuous state employment. The bill requires employees to take leave within one year of a child's birth or adoption and provides that if two employees are eligible for benefits for the same child, only one shall claim benefits. The bill provides that if an employee is eligible for both parental leave and maternity leave for the same child, parental leave covers the first 12 weeks of leave; thereafter, if the employee provides notification to her employer from her physician that she is unable to return to work, she may receive short-term disability benefits.
