How long can an employee request to be off work for parental leave?

Employees are entitled to request six months of parental leave for the purposes specified WAC 357-31-460. Employers may only deny requests for that portion of the parental leave that exceeds the provisions of WAC 357-31-525. The only basis for denial is operational necessity. Employers may approve requests for more than six months of parental leave.
