What paternity leave rights do new fathers have?

Our society places significant emphasis on the rights of working mothers when they give birth and seek maternity leave while maintaining their employment. However, working mothers can also benefit from the help of the child's father. Close collaboration when it comes to parenting can help the child greatly.  At the same time, it can also help both parents to share family responsibilities so that they can better manage their careers.

Do jokes and comments count as sexual harassment?

Most Washington, D.C., residents understand that the definition of sexual harassment covers actions such as forced physical contact or requests for sexual favors in exchange for employment. Other actions may be harder to classify. If you are experiencing unwelcome jokes or discussions at work that are sexual in nature, you may be able to file a harassment complaint. However, it is sometimes more difficult to determine whether words and jokes qualify as sexual harassment.
