Richmond, Virginia-based McGuire Woods will receive a Family Friendly Employer award from Charlottesville’s Children, Youth and Family Services.
The agency is recognizing McGuire Woods’ liberal family leave and child care coverage policies.
The law firm’s parental leave policy is not gender-specific, and offers time off even if the staffer involved is not the primary caregiver.
Children, Youth and Family Services will formally present its award to McGuire Woods later this month.
McGuire Woods is a 900-lawyer firm that has offices in 15 US cities including New York, Washington DC, Los Angeles and Chicago. It has existing international offices in Brussels and Almaty.
