Parents at March of Dimes get extended benefits

by on

The March of Dimes devotes itself to promoting healthy babies—in the community and among its own employees.

To that end, working moms can take 26 weeks off—six with full pay—with a guarantee that their jobs will be waiting for them when they return. They also get another week of paid sick leave.

The organization doubled its paternity benefit last year. Now working fathers get two paid weeks off after the birth of a child—three if the baby is hospitalized in an intensive care unit.

In addition, the nonprofit offers 100% medical coverage for all maternity and childbirth expenses, and no-cost well-child care through age 18.

The firm gives expectant moms prenatal kits and breast pumps. If they’re pregnant when they’re hired, they’re eligible for medical benefits on their first day of work. So are expectant dads and partners.

Expectant moms may request two weeks of this leave prior to delivery, even if it’s not medically necessary.

Other benefits for new parents include an adoption stipend of $5,000, one paid week off for adoption or foster care placement of a child and up to six unpaid months of absence for birth, adoption or foster care placement.

All March of Dimes employees get 10 days of paid sick leave, which may be used if their children are ill. Unused sick time may accrue from year to year.
