Apple adds four week grace period for new parents returning from leave

Fast Company:

Apple is introducing a policy that will give new parents a four-week grace period after returning from leave. During that time, they will continue to be paid like full-time employees but will have the flexibility to work part-time and set their own hours with their manager’s oversight.


These benefits extend to Apple’s retail workers, as well, who account for nearly half of the company’s employees.

That last bit is especially interesting. Cool that retail workers get this benefit, interesting that they account for almost half of Apple’s employees.
