By Abhik Sengupta: Elon Musk’s Twitter is reportedly taking another harsh measure to mitigate expenses after laying off 50 per cent of the workforce. According to a tweet by The New York Times’s tech reporter Kate Conger, Twitter will now offer only two weeks of paid parental leave, down from 20 weeks (four months). The report citing “internal docs” notes that Twitter is looking at the law to tweak the company’s parental leave policy. At a Federal level, the US does not have a law that guarantees workers paid leave. However, some states have placed measures to protect the workforce.
