There is a wonderful chart and article over at the Huffington Post that takes a comparative look at parental leave. Many of us examine this issue when we cover the FMLA, or teach an international employment law class. The chart is really helpful in hitting home the idea of how far behind the US is in this area. It provides a nice visual overview of the topic for your students. From the article:
"The U.S. didn't crack the top 10 "worst" list for paternity leave, but it didn't make it on the "best" list either. Any way you slice it, it seems the vast majority of working parents in the U.S. have few options when it comes to taking care of newborns."
This is an interesting and important issue and I recommend this article for your review.
