Parental leave gathers widespread support.


A nationwide survey of 1,000 persons conducted by the Gallup organization for the Employee Benefit Research Institute found an overwhelming majority of Americans support the concept of parental leave.

Of those polled, 81% believe employers should be required to provide an unpaid leave of absence to an employee for the birth or adoption of a child or the illness of a family member. Seventy-seven percent believe employers should be required to continue health benefits during the leave period.

More than 70% said parental leave policies should apply equally to men and women and 73% believe employers could do more to help employees be both good workers and good parents.
