Briggs and Morgan, P.A. is proud to announce an enhanced parental leave policy for attorneys following the birth, adoption or foster placement of a child.

Effective June 1, the firm expanded its paid parental leave for attorneys to ten weeks, which replaces the previously offered six weeks. Paid parental leave for birth mothers will begin after first completing short-term disability leave for the birth of a child – providing a total of 16-18 weeks of paid time off. Fathers and adopting parents receive a total of 10 weeks.

“We are happy to offer the additional time off to our attorneys and their growing families,” said executive director Ann Rainhart. “The change is one example of the firm’s efforts to recruit and retain the market’s best talent.”
