Goldman Sachs’ new policy increased paid parenting leave for non-primary parents to four weeks. Same-sex couples are eligible for this new policy.
Announcement – The enhanced parental leave policy is the newest addition to our existing leave policies which include 16 weeks of paid maternity, adoption and surrogacy leave for primary caregivers.
Other Wall Street firms leading the paid paternity leave movement include Bank of America (12 weeks) and Citigroup (2 weeks). Silicon Valley remains way ahead of Wall Street on this perk. Companies including Yahoo, Google, Facebook, and Twitter all offer two to six months leave for both new mothers, fathers, and adopting parents.
