Sounds like someone finally recognizes the reality of family caregiving. In an unprecedented move, Deloitte, the major US tax, audit and consulting firm, has announced that all employees will now be eligible for 16 weeks of paid family leave, each year. This new policy allows all staff, young or older, single or married, men or women, to take off time from work to attend to family responsibilities- whether a newborn, ailing spouse or older parent. While most people have family issues outside of work that require attention, there is often little or no flexibility at work, and certainly no paid leave, to take the time necessary to address these personal issues. The new Deloitte policy sends a clear message: it’s normal to want time off to help family members in need, and it makes good business sense as well. Read about the new Deloitte policy Here.
