46103495 story So What If Yahoo's New Dads Get Less Leave Than Moms? 832 Posted by timothy on Thursday May 02, 2013 @03:35PM from the what-about-occasional-babysitters? dept. Dawn Kawamoto writes "Yahoo rolled out an expanded maternity/paternity policy that doubled the family leave for moms to 16 weeks. But new dads at Yahoo get only 8 weeks. It turns out that Yahoo is not the only Fortune 500 company to short-shrift news dads. But, really, do new dads think it's worth crying over? Hmmm...changing diapers or cleaning up code — both are messy, but one smells less."
