Today I published an op-ed in the +Wall Street Journal “Paid Maternity Leave Is Good for Business.” I was surprised to learn that according to the UN's International Labor Organization, the U.S. is the only country in the world aside from Papua New Guinea that doesn’t require paid maternity leave. #maternityleave#leadonleave
I read the article carefully to learn why maternity leave for fathers is good for business, but couldn't find it. While I think its important for the fathers and newborn development, the best a business could do is tolerate the father's absence hoping the employee doesn't find work elsewhere. But how is that "good for business"?
