I recently came back to work after my maternity leave.
I recently came back to work after my maternity leave. It's a busy job, and I've been squeezing in pumping breaks in between meetings. Yesterday, my coworker actually asked to come into the pumping room to discuss a project since she couldn't find time on my calendar. How do I explain that this is NOT OK?!
Did you combine your CFRA leave (baby bonding) with FMLA leave? If not you should check out https://recovermywages.com/fmla-medical-leave-in-california/
Some things are just private and pumping is one such thing. Pumping in front of your co-worker is not like pumping in front of your bestie or your sister... explain that for you this is like going to the toilet, t's private and you need to be relaxed when you pump. I'm pretty sure she'll get the hint.
My boss has been extremely demanding since I came back from maternity leave - it seems like she wants me to make up for the "missed time" - how can I manager her expectations? I'm still not getting a full night of sleep but I'm doing my best.
I was on maternity leave when Grace Hopper Conference tickets became available unfortunately. I promised my team (two other women) that we would go but am having trouble finding an "in." Does anyone know of anyone who has extra tickets? If not, do you know any other routes I could go to get some?
I was wondering if any of you ladies have any suggestions on work from home jobs? I really would like to not go back to my 9-5 job and be away from my little. I would greatly appreciate the suggestions. I would like to not have to pay to start and don't want to be selling scentsy, etc. TIA!
I am currently 36 weeks pregnant and gearing up to go on maternity leave at the end of the month. I recently came across a new job oppurnity that would be better for my family. I'm at the finishing stages of interviewing with this new company and I am worried that I will find out I got the job while on maternity leave. My question is, what happens to my maternity benefits and how do I go about leaving my current job without issue?
