H.R. 6036 would require the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to provide up to 12 weeks of paid parental leave to certain medical employees (such as physicians, dentists, podiatrists, and registered nurses). VA would be required to provide that benefit to eligible employees following the birth or adoption of a child or the initial placement of a foster child. Such leave would be available during the 12-month period beginning on the date of the child’s birth or placement. That requirement would take effect at the start of fiscal year 2021.
