Hey everyone! In new to this board, as I usually post in the July board. I am a first time mother, and I was wondering if anyone who has gone through this before can explain maternity leave benefits to me. I met with my HR department lady at my job and everything was so confusing to me! I understand I will be able to use FMLA, FLA, and NJ Disability. Under these laws I can take up to 4 week before my due date, then 12 weeks after my due date. Is the 4 weeks before my due date paid? Im pretty sure the 12 weeks after would be. I am so confused! I'll probably request to meet with the HR lady again soon, but in the mean time I was looking for some input from someone who has recently gone through this. Thanks!
