Print | Front Page | Email this story

NEW YORK (AP) — Adobe is the latest tech company to extend its paid parental leave policy after Netflix said it would offer corporate employees up to a year of paid leave to care for new babies.

Adobe Systems Inc. said Monday that it will offer parents who are the primary caregivers 16 weeks of paid leave after the birth or adoption of a child. That's in addition to 10 weeks of paid medical leave following childbirth, so a new mother could take a total of 26 weeks off.

Non-primary caregivers will receive four weeks with full pay.

Adobe will also cover up to 4 weeks of family leave to care for a sick family member.

The new policy applies to Adobe's 6,000 U.S. employees and it is effective Nov. 1.
