What happens if my wife delivers a day or two before I start my new job at fb/google?

Will I still get to take parents leave?

    Put more resources on it and deliver earlier than projected date.

    Try to pull your start date back to 1 month before she is due.

      Or 1 month after. Take parental leave with your current employer. Then maybe you can take another one at your new employer (baby bonding).

      I know at intel the event date (date f birth) has to be on or after first day of employment.

      Not much flexibility since start date is in a few weeks and I haven’t given notice yet

      You can always push the start date. You don't even need an excuse - birth of a baby is legit

      Or maybe push start date. Take parental leave in current company. Join new, work for few months and take parental leave again ?

      He might not have parental leave in the current company. Not all companies offer it.

    It happened to me so I can share my experience. Before joining date if the baby is born then you don’t get any parental leave or benefits. However , if offer was accepted and joining date confirmed and then your baby was born just a few days before joining there is scope of negotiation

    On a side note, are you joining both the companies on the same date ?
