I haven't done much research on maternity leave, because I'm almost positive my employer doesn't even qualify for it (there are like...3 employees lol). And, if we can afford it, I don't plan on going back.
Well...my friend just told me that I should look into the state laws anyways and see if I can get it...even if I don't plan on returning.
This just seems....tacky...to me. And I didn't think it was possible if your employer didn't "fund" it or qualify or whatever.
So...what do you think? It sounds tacky to me, but in her mind it's completely normal and I "deserve it" (I hate that statement personally, but just sharing what she said lol)
