I am not sure that employers fully grasp the nature of the decision to provide paid maternity leave. I have spoken with many friends who have taken this factor into account when deciding where to seek employment. I have conducted mock interviews with colleagues, who in trepidation are preparing to approach a managing partner about negotiating maternity leave into their employment contract. There are attorneys who are planning their child rearing around when they might make partner, and whether or not the decision to have a child will hold them back from that goal. Other peers wish to make a lateral move and are willing to take salary decreases in exchange for maternity leave benefits and work-from-home accommodations.
