City of Houston - New Parent Friendly Employer Designation

Join the City of Houston in making history by earning the New Parent Friendly Employer Designation for your business! On April 13, 2022, Mayor Sylvester Turner and City Council unanimously approved a paid parental leave policy for municipal employees, and now businesses in the City of Houston can do the same. With this policy, eligible employees can request paid parental leave instead of relying only on saved vacation time or unpaid leave.
