ABSTRACT
The article looks at the flexible schedules and infant-friendly programs of companies in the U.S. for new mothers. Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) introduced a more flexible corporate environment through programs including the permission for mothers to work at home after the five-week maternity leave, option to bring newborns in the workplace and rework on job descriptions. The article notes that the programs allow mothers to work without separating from their child and prevent their resignations.
