Abstract : While the United States continues to be the only developed nation without mandated paid maternity leaves, U.S. employers are blazing their own trail for new parents.

Finally, the author discusses why not all employers are offering these benefits as well as considerations for employers contemplating whether paid parental leave is right for them.
