So, I just talked to my boss and he knows NOTHING about FMLA and Maternity leave, I'm pretty much having to educate him on it. Well, we talked about it a few months ago on what my plans were at that time, and now he wants to talk about it again since its getting closer to that time. That's fine...then he says "We just need to make sure that it will work out for everyone."
WHAT, no I'm entitled to this time and I can take it whether it works out for my co-worker or not....I don't think he gets that fact. (I didn't say that to him tho, just thought it) So I offered to have HR at the meeting with us (he hates getting HR involved with ANYTHING) I haven't heard back yet since he's doing a lot of running around the building right now. But still, if he thinks that he can decide when I come back, he's got another thing coming, I get 12 weeks and I'm coming back part time for the last few weeks just to be nice (and get money during my unpaid part too). I guess I'll just have to see what happens and how much drama unfolds...I'll keep you posted.
