Paid parental leave too costly, state university leaders say - Janel Davis, Atlanta Journal Constitution

A proposal seeking paid parental leave that advocates are pushing for at the University of Georgia is too expensive and won’t be implemented at the state’s public colleges, system administrators said this week. An advisory council of faculty, staff and students at UGA recommended earlier this week that the state’s flagship institution provide eight weeks of paid leave for employees — both men and women — after the birth or adoption of a baby. System employees currently receive up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave through the federal Family Medical Leave Act, and they can also use a collection of accrued annual and sick leave, time off that comes with compensation, as well as short-term disability leave.
