Hi out there,
I am completely overwhelmed with FMLA paperwork and am not sure what, if any, to fill out; this is my first baby. I started my job in October 2012 and have a due date of February 8, 2013. I told my employer this when I was first hired and he said it wasn't a problem for me to be out on leave (I told him I was planning on taking a short leave - I'm thinking maybe 4-6 weeks at the most). Do I qualify for paid leave? Unpaid leave? Do I have to submit paperwork? I'm totally lost here. Any advice would be helpful.
