I have have been e-mailing my main HR person to get the information on my company's maternity leave policy. Great to find out that I will get paid 2/3 of my salary under STD. When I asked about FMLA and how it applies I found out that it doesn't apply to my office since it is less than 50 employees (we have 25 people on our office)..boo!
The HR guy did tell me that once the STD company tells payroll what my return date is they will make a note of it but that if after that time is up I feel I need to spend more time at home all I have to do is ask my main supervisor for additional time off (since we are not covered on FMLA). He said that other ladies who have been taken maternity leave in the company have done this and no one has ever not been granted additional time off if they requested it. Of course, the one thing I forgot to ask was if it was paid or unpaid time off, but I am going to assume it is unpaid.
