New York Gov. Kathy Hochul announced a policy Feb. 14, effective immediately, that provides more than 10,000 nonunion state employees with 12 weeks of fully paid parental leave “to use for bonding with a newborn, fostered or adopted child,” HR Dive reports. The policy applies to all executive branch employees who work full time or at least 50% part-time on their first day on the job.
