For all you full time working mamas, how long do you get off after your little one makes his/her debut?
Wow!!!! that is ridiculous and fabulous all at the same time! Lucky you!!! I only get 6 weeks paid at 66.6% percent of my normal pay.. I have to supplement the other 33.3% with my own vacation time, sick time, or take it unpaid!!!!
You truly have an awesome job! I would have to say, I am quite a bit jealous!
FMLA requires 12 weeks, but it doesn't have to be paid.
At my work I have to use up my Sick leave and Vacation.
I work government in Canada, so I have an even better deal than most as I get paid more than just EI for my leave. Most parents just get EI, which tops out around $450/week.
I don't like my job much, but I won't be leaving until I'm done having kids.
I get unpaid for 12 weeks.
We did start paying into disability back in May so I will get 75% of my pay, but it cost me $60 a month to get that disability insurance!
Unpaid up to 4 months.
However I might end up a SAHM prior to birth depending on a probable promotion for MH combined with a fabulous bonus paying off large debts (car and some CC).
I have the 12 weeks unpaid, however have taken out short term disabilies so I have that paid for the 6 weeks at 60% of my income, plus I have medical reserve, medical, and vacation time saved too.
I am hoping to be home for 9 weeks, however if my husband isn't working (he works construction), then I will probably be back sooner.
Same here. I plan to have about 10 weeks paid, but 12 weeks home. I don't want to use ALL my PTO so I can still take time off if one of my babies gets sick (or I do) before I can accrue enough PTO again.
I get a little over 11 hours PTO per 2 week pay cycle and about 1 week disability leave per year. My PTO accrues without being lost, so I try not to use it all up each year in preparation for maternity leave.
