Parents would get 6 weeks paid leave under mayor's plan

CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

Mayor John Cranley has proposed that City of Cincinnati employees get 6 weeks of paid parental leave.

The City only gives fathers a total of two days off - one on the child’s day of birth and another on the day the child goes home.

Under the current policy, mothers get six weeks of paid leave after the child’s delivery and another six weeks if a medical issue occurs. A doctor must approve that additional time.

Mayor Cranley’s proposal would allow new mothers and fathers who work for the City of Cincinnati to use up to six weeks’ worth of paid sick time following the birth or adoption of a child.

City employees could borrow their future sick time. They accrue sick time over the duration of employment and could use it toward paid parental leave.

Employees would have to pay back the sick time by not accruing it as fast as they normally would.

If employees leave the city job before the City is made full on the payment, they will have to pay the money City back directly. The same guidelines would apply for adoptive parents.

The proposal will be referred to Cincinnati City Council’s Budget and Finance Committee for review on Sept. 14.
