2021 Parental Leave

Employees going on a leave of absence for the birth or adoption of a child must contact the appropriate leave administrator (Prudential (Blue) or Voya (Orange)) to initiate the leave request and provide necessary documentation. Parental/Baby Bonding leave provides you with job and benefits protection, but may be unpaid.

Parental/Baby Bonding leave pay is for employees who have a minimum of 12 months of consecutive service at the time of the birth/adoption event and provides 10 weeks (Blue) and three weeks (Orange) of paid time off to bond with their newborn or newly adopted child.

Employees in states that are eligible for wage replacement must apply for the state benefit. It is the employee’s responsibility to contact the state or appropriate vendor to apply and provide the necessary documentation.

2022 Parental Leave

Employees going on a leave of absence due to the birth or adoption of a child must contact Broadspire to initiate the leave request and provide necessary documentation. Parental leave provides you with job and benefits protection, but may be unpaid.

Paid Parental Leave offers eligible full-time employees with a period of eight weeks of paid time off to bond with their newborn or newly adopted child. This policy is only applicable for children born or adopted on or after January 1, 2022.

Pregnancy Recuperation provides eligible birth parents on approved STD with “top-off” pay to provide 100% income replacement for the duration of their approved short-term disability (not to exceed eight weeks). Pregnancy Recuperation pay does not commence prior to the delivery date. After this benefit ends, Paid Parental Leave would grant up to eight weeks at 100% pay for employees to bond with their child.

Employees in states that are eligible for wage replacement must apply for the state benefit. It is the employee’s responsibility to contact the state or appropriate vendor to apply and provide the necessary documentation.
