Goldman gives staff 10 days paid family leave due to coronavirus: memo

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Wall Street bank Goldman Sachs <GS.N> is offering employees 10 days of paid family leave to care for children or elderly parents who are at home during the coronavirus pandemic, according to a memo sent to staff on Tuesday that was seen by Reuters.

Several banks have been extending extra paid time-off to employees, as the flu-like virus has shut down schools and forced many to stay at home.
