Encouraging Employers to Support Adoption by Their Employees
Most employer health plans cover the costs of childbirth, but assistance for adoption is much less common. To foster corporate support for adoption, the Adoption Institute is creating forums to encourage companies to add adoption benefits to their employee benefit packages and to educate employees about adoption opportunities. Funded by State Street Bank, four Boston seminars are being conducted in 2001-2002. When the pilot seminar series is completed, the Adoption Institute will develop materials to replicate the program with interested employers and employees in other communities.
