Working while out on STD after giving birth.
I currently work a FT job and do some consultant work from home outside of my job. My job does not have maternity leave so I plan on going out on STD. I would love to increase my consultant work while Im out to supplement my income. Will I be penalized for receiving disability while still technically working?
I did this too, and while it may not technically be allowed, it's doubtful anyone will know or come after you to take BACK your STD payments...especially since I assume this is going to relatively lite work given that you've just had a baby.
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.
What have other people done if they had a long maternity leave? Should I offer to help find a replacement? Or is that crazy since that'd be like offering up my job?
I'm about to start my leave but I'm feeling anxious about tying up loose ends before then...are there any general last-minute things people do at work before departing? I want to make sure I'm not forgetting anything!
Any tips on how to ask for maternity leave policy when getting a job offer? I really want to make sure I'm going somewhere that has something decent but they aren't on this site yet and I can't find info online for it.
