Anyone quit their job on maternity leave?

Mobile : Anyone quit their job on maternity leave?

 I'm just curious if anyone quit their job while on maternity leave, how did that work with you HR department? Did you have to repay any benefits, were you able to leave on good standing or is it considered not giving a 2 weeks notice?

 TIA

  • It's probably different in the states than Canada, but here you need to stay employed 30 days after your leave ends in order to not have to repay. Or if you have a cool boss, they can leave the return date as unknown

    I did! All of my benefits are through my husband's work so I am not much help. My boss was awesome about it. I just had to write a letter of resignation and clean out my desk. However, HR is supposed to contact me about an exit interview.

  • I didn't quit during leave but know that my short term disability was contingent on returning to work for at least 30 days following the leave.

  • Thanks for the response!

  • I did after I had dd1. I didn't really have to do anything but then again my maternity leave was unpaid. I just came in, my boss had some papers for me to sign and then I turned my badge in. And yes, I left in good standing. In fact, I may return sometime in the next few months.
