Federal employees who are new parents now have expanded leave options.
Federal employees now have access to expanded leave options for the purposes of childbirth, adoption and foster care. Last month, all federal agencies were required to begin implementing expanded leave options for new parents as directed by President Obama's executive memo issued in January.

NTEU worked with agencies to ensure they would implement the new options as quickly as possible. The president ordered agencies to grant leave requests from employees for the purposes of childbirth, adoption and foster care to the extent permitted by law.

The White House directive does not actually create a new form of leave. President Obama’s memo essentially creates new options to take advanced leave (sick or annual) that did not exist.

Agencies must let employees who have a child, who are adopting a child, or have a child placed with them in foster care take six weeks off in a pay status on advanced sick or annual leave if they request it. Read the complete story in the Bulletin.
