Fathers Sue for More Parental Leave

Father’s Day has just past and once this holiday has ended, many fathers return to business as usual at home and on the job.

We once wrote about that “Fathers Are Reluctant to Take Paternity Leave” and while that may still be the case for some, things are changing. The Washington Post recently reported on “How a dad’s lawsuit against JP Morgan Chase could lead to more parental leave elsewhere” and while this is the first such case in recent years, it is a very high-profile one.

There is recent breaking news on the retirement plan rules front. The House passed a bill that would change some of the rules around 401(k)s and IRAs.

It will do some nice things. The Senate still needs to pass it and the President still needs to sign it. Given how overwhelmingly the House passed it, it seems like there’s a good chance it could become law.

One change is that it would allow people to continue making IRA contributions past 70 1/2, …
