As if giving us Orange Is the New Black and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt weren’t enough, the online streaming service just announced the most badass company perk ever: unlimited maternity and paternity leave for all.
Yep, in an official statement, Netflix says it is giving new moms and dads permission to take off as much time as they need during the first year after a child’s birth or adoption. Not only that, it’s totally cool if employees want to return to work part-time or full-time for a few months, then go back out again as needed. Whatever they decide, Netflix will continue to pay their full salaries and benefits during that time.
Attention, all other companies in the world: The bar has been raised.
