IN AN INDUSTRY THAT TARGETS WOMEN AS THE CONSUMER WHICH ARE THE BEST FASHION COMPANIES FOR WOMEN TO WORK AT? ANY?
Submitting a Parental Leave Proposal
Hi there! I'm working to gather all necessary data and competitive information to submit a compelling proposal to my company in hopes to increase paid parental leave. Has anyone on this board been successful in doing this? Do you feel like there was any specific information that really won over your HR team/board of directors? I'd also love any insight in format. I'm in marketing, so I can put together a mean PowerPoint, but should it be something more formal? I'd love any guidance as i'm really passionate about making this happy for myself and my colleagues.
Finding a part time in office and work from home job
I have been in the media sales industry for 8 years now. I'm looking for something out there that can be accommodating of 1-2 days from home to give me a break from my hour long commute (each way) in to the city. With two small children, this would really save my life. A lot of employers in New York are behind in adopting that mentality that you don't have to be in the office every minute to get your work done. I'm trying to navigate the landscape and find the ones that support this, and appreciate how hard mothers work!
Not sure what to do...
I just came back to work after getting 6 weeks of maternity leave. I was originally told that I would get the days that we got for Christmas and New Years added to the end of my maternity leave before I had my son but then a week before I was to come back that I would not get those days so I ended up having to take half of my vacation days since I already had appointments made. Also, there are other women at my job that either just had a child or are pregnant that are getting to work from home full time but I am not allowed to. My company does not have much in writing for maternity leave as we are a smaller company that does not qualify for FMLA. Also, now that I am back, things are very different. I do not really feel welcomed back as not many people are talking to me at all including my bosses. I am having such a hard time leaving my son and the whole situation at work isn't helping. Should I look for a new job or stick it out?
Can my place of employment use my time off as a reason to not give me my vacation at my yearly renewal of vacation. They are saying since i didn't work the whole year because i took time off for my maternity that they wont give me my yearly vacation now that its due.
