Nike expands, adds to its paid family leave

Full-time U.S. employees of Nike Inc. (NKE.N) who are new parents or who are needed to care for sick family members are now eligible to receive eight weeks of paid leave, the world's biggest sportswear company said on Wednesday.

Birth mothers are now eligible for a minimum of 14 paid weeks of leave, Nike said, with more paid leave allowable if a doctor deems it medically necessary. Previously, birth mothers were allowed a minimum of six weeks paid leave to care for their newborns, said a company spokeswoman.
