This bill requires an employer that provides paid parental leave to provide an equal amount of leave for the birth of a child and the adoption of a child. It also prohibits an employer from providing different amounts of paid parental leave based on the gender of the employee or employee's domestic partner. The bill uses the definition of "employer" under the family medical leave laws. The bill establishes a fine of $10,000 for violation of these requirements.
