Feedback at 5:00: Maternity/Paternity Leave

Posted: Updated:

Moms and dads who work for Yahoo can now spend up to a quarter of their baby's first year of life on paid leave.

Under the new policy, parents can take as many as 4 months of paid-leave when they bring a new baby home.

Mothers can take as many as 16 paid weeks off and fathers are eligible for eight weeks of paid leave.

New parents will also receive $500 to help with baby-related costs.

For today's Feedback at 5:00, what do you think about Yahoo's decision?
