Susman Godfrey has expanded its parental leave policy for associates, providing unlimited paid parental leave to all new parents, regardless of gender or whether they gave birth or are a caregiver.

Associates can determine the length of their leave, but the hours will be annualized for bonus purposes of up to 18 weeks for women who give birth and up to 12 weeks for any associate.  This means their time off will not count against them for bonus purposes. The prior policy provided up to 16 weeks for a woman who delivered a baby and up to four weeks for other parents.

The new parental leave policy follows the Houston-based trial firm’s announcement in 2015 of an unlimited paid vacation policy for associates.
