IM WORKING AT MY JOB FOR 2 AND HALF YEARS. IT IS 100% COMMISSION. WE GET 30% OF OUR DEPOSIT SALES MADE WEEKLY. IM CURIOUS TO KNOW WHAT I SHOULD REQUEST FOR MATERNITY LEAVE OR WHAT I AM ENTITLED TO
I have been at my current job 3 years yet I am in the final interview this week for a new job. If I get the offer how do I ask about the questions I want answers to before accepting.. such as exactly how paid or unpaid leave would apply to me if I got pregnant within my first 6-12 months on the job, benefits questions, and policies. I know the maternity leave is good but I don't know how long I must work there first before it applies to me. This would be my first pregnancy so I also don't really even know what aspects of coverage are most important and really have the biggest affect ? If my leave was unpaid would my new increased salary make up the difference in the time I'd be working to not worry about this? Any tips on what to be aware of when switching insurance and leaving an employer and starting new insurance? Thank you!
Is it illegal to work while on maternity leave? I would not be compensated by my work. I have having a hard time find a clear answer. I am an accounting manager and I am due at year end. I would like to still do some work when I am off. I just need some back up to present my case.
I want to start my maternity leave a week before induction. Am I allowed to use my FMLA early and just shorten my time with the baby? I do not have any accrued time off for use. I was told I would need to be medically incapacitated by a Dr. Before it would be “allowed” to start continuous FMLA.
How does New York State's new paid family leave policy dovetail with short term disability policies? I'm trying to decide whether to purchase additional short term disability coverage to cover wage losses during my next pregnancy. New York State has passed Paid Family Leave and so I understand if I give birth in 2018 I will be eligible for approximately 50% of my salary for 8 weeks. What is unclear to me is whether I would first take 6 weeks of short term disability and then 8 weeks of Paid Family Leave? Or is the short term disability taken at the same time as Paid Family Leave and so I would collect disability and paid family leave at the same time up to 100% of my salary. In that case it wouldn't make sense to purchase additional disability coverage. I can't find an answer anywhere, and my employer and their short term disability carrier Aflak don't know either.
