Kudos to FLOW on parental leave policy

Published:Saturday | July 13, 2019 | 12:19 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

FLOW’s revelation that it will now grant parental leave to fathers and adoptive and foster parents of newborns is a step in the right direction.

However, one of the issues we should consider is whether the absence of parents from the workforce will further hurt Jamaica’s already low productivity rate. We’ll be better able to make that assessment in the future.

But until then, I think we are heading in the right direction in making Jamaica the best place of choice to live, work, raise families and do business.
