TIAA Unveils Gender Neutral Parental Leave Policy

TIAA recently announced an expanded gender neutral parental leave policy.

TIAA recently announced an expanded gender neutral parental leave policy. Effective January 1st 2018, all full and part-time employees now have access to 16 weeks of fully paid leave from work to be with their child after birth, adoption or after a child is placed with them for foster care.

Equal parental leave is offered to all new parents — regardless of the new parent's gender, whether the new parent physically gives birth to the baby, or whether the new parent will be a "primary" or "secondary" caregiver.

 

"Providing equal parental leave benefits to all of our employees is a foundational component of creating a truly inclusive workplace," said Bob Weinman, Head of Benefits at TIAA. "Through a gender neutral policy, we're illustrating our commitment to being an employer of choice while continuing to raise the bar for our industry."

"By enhancing policies that put men and women on equal footing in caregiving responsibilities, we're showing our employees and customers that gender equality is a top priority for TIAA," he continued.
