The Estée Lauder Cos. Inc. on Wednesday unveiled a significant broadening of its family-related benefits program. The policies, which are effective beginning May 1, include an increase of paid paternal leave to 20 weeks for all parents regardless of gender, including those who are adopting or fostering a child, with the addition of six weeks of back-to-work-flexibility to allow parents to bond with new children and transition back to work. This is an addition to the Short Term Disability benefits typically available to mothers for six to eight weeks following childbirth. Lauder is also implementing a new adoption assistance program that will provide up to $10,000 for eligible expenses related to legal adoptions of children under 18 — or older if it is a special needs adoption — as well as an expansion of back-up-care benefits to include in-home care for children or adults and elders.

And I’m not saying I’m Steph Curry, but when you’re on [showrunner] Ryan Murphy’s team, it seems more palpable than ever,” he continues. (Criss previously starred on “Glee,” another Murphy creation, although they didn’t directly work together.) “I feel like I’ve already won the lottery.” Read more in WWD.com (📸: @lexieblacklock ) #wwdeye #darrencriss #americancrimestory #emmys2018
