CA Tech announces 12-week paid leave for new parents
HYDERABAD, JULY 9
Employees of CA Technologies will now get a 12-week paternity leave. To be available globally, the leave can be availed by a new parent for a minimum of 12 weeks paid leave during the first 12 months following the birth or adoption of a child.
“While the women employees at CA (India) are continued to be eligible for a maternity leave of 26 weeks, the paternity leave policy allows all male employees who have babies born or adopted, a 12-week paid leave,” Sunil Sankar, Vice-President (People Business Partner), CA India, said.
“The new policy gives new mothers and fathers an opportunity to bond with and care for their children,” the company said.
“We believe that this will encourage male as well as female employees to be actively involved in the initial months of caring for their new child,” he said.
Male employees will be eligible for the paternity leave if they have put in 12 months service at the date the child is born, or for adoptive parents where a child is matched or newly placed with them.
