I was on maternity leave when Grace Hopper Conference tickets
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?
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'm having a hard time concentrating, I feel so huge and uncomfortable and am just generally wondering whether I should just go home most days and start my maternity leave already...even though I was planning on working until week 40. What did other people do if they were feeling this way?
Best Fashion Companies for Women? Top 10?
Hello, my company pays 100% of my maternity for 12 weeks. Initially I was told the process is for me to submit my state pay stubs at whatever frequency I'd like and my company would pay the difference to ensure I received 100% of my income. Last week I casually sent my HR department a note and they told me they can no longer honor that policy and won't pay the 100% until I return from maternity leave. Is there any laws to protect me in this situation? It's creating both stress and financial hardships.
