February 5, 2013 – Media Mention
In an article discussing the growing number of male caregivers and the spike in related employment discrimination claims, Herrick, Feinstein partner and co-chair of the Employment Practice Group Mara B. Levin is quoted about the increase in clients seeking advice on the topic. Specifically the article notes that Ms. Levin has advised clients that, "Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requests need to be gender neutral, as do requests for part-time and flexible schedules. And references to maternity leave need to be immediately changed to parental leave."
