Paid Maternity Leave

I am looking to update our paid maternity leave.  I was curious as to how other companies structure paid maternity leave.  Can you share your thoughts and policies?  (How long, full or partial wages, etc?)

    Good Morning Jennifer -

    There are so many decisions and factors that go into a maternity leave policy. 

    A vast majority of our clients institute a Short Term Disability policy to serve in conjunction with a formalized Maternity Leave Policy.  

    Our most common implementations include roughly 60% pay at 12 weeks.  

    However, it is rarely a one size fits due to industry differences and job titles. 

    Would you mind sending an email to and can send you some best practice materials we send to our partners? Also, would love to hear more about your company and let you know the most common practices we see in your group size and industry.
