Parental leave policy template

A progressive parental leave policy offers a multitude of benefits to both employer and employee, and it’s in high demand: 79% of men and women responding to a WORK180 poll said a poor parental leave policy would put them off applying for a role.

Update or create a progressive parental leave policy your company can be proud of with our free template, written and approved by diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) experts:

  • Global best practice: Use our template to ensure your policy offers inclusions employees want and need to thrive in the workplace.
