Discussion Question

Pregnant before my 1 year anniversary at my employer

Being pregnant before being eligible for maternity leave, how will that work? I’m concerned about what will happen once I disclose this information to my boss. This is my first time being pregnant before reaching 1 year at any employer I’ve worked at. Advice is much appreciated!!

    Every employer has a different policy about whether they offer paid leave and what tenure you must have before their policy kicks in....FMLA which is job protected unpaid parental leave only applies to those who have worked 1 year and 1,250 hours....hopefully your employer's policy kicks in before 1 year! Also, to be clear, if you're telling your employer you're pregnant but not having the baby for one year since you've started working, FMLA should apply, as should any tenure rules that grant company paid leave if you've been with the company at least 1 year (that is, your time as a pregnant employee counts!)
