CNN reporter Josh Levs has filed an EEOC complaint against Time Warner over their family leave policy which he claims is biased. Levs and his wife just had their third child. He claims that under Time Warner rules, all parents of new children have the option of 10 paid weeks off — except biological fathers.
Under Time Warner rules, I have only two choices: stay out for 10 weeks without pay, or return to work and hire someone to come to our home each day. Neither is financially tenable, and the fact that only biological dads face this choice at this point in a newborn’s life is ludicrous.
Levs says he will return to work next week, “unfairly forced to choose between the two untenable options.”
“Trust me — it’s the last thing I want to be doing right now,” Levs writes, adding, “I’m not giving up without a fight.”
