The takeaway

We’re on a journey to create a benefits program that is comprehensive, flexible, and tailored just for you. That’s why we recently announced we are enhancing our parental leave benefit from 12 weeks to 18 weeks.

Okta’s program works in conjunction with federal and state leave laws to provide you with job protection and income replacement while you’re away.

Here’s a quick summary of our parental leave program; for the details, refer to the Okta Employee Handbook (U.S.), available on the Okta People Wiki.

Eligibility for Okta parental leave

You can take your leave all at once, or intermittently, within 12 months of your child’s birth or placement.

Job and income protection while you are on parental leave

You can take up to 18 weeks of time away under Okta’s parental leave policy.

You’re paid at 100% of your base pay for up to 18 weeks, coordinated with state/local disability benefits.

Okta’s parental leave runs concurrently with federal, state, and local laws, including FMLA, California Family Rights Act (CFRA), and Pregnancy Disability Leave. California’s laws (and laws in other states) may extend your leave and income replacement period. The Okta Employee Handbook (U.S.), available on the Okta People Wiki, provides more details.
