United States Postal Service Maternity Leave Comments

  • "There is no set leave, but the sick days you can roll over for years and years, and usually that is what people take for maternity leave." - Lady Alma
  • "At headquarters, it's a good work/life balance, but they reward tenure. There are no maternity benefits, but you can use annual/sick leave to take up to 12 weeks under FMLA. If you haven't been with the company long, you don't have many options. They treat women as equals here, but the system is set up so the main way to get promoted is switching groups or positions. If you like your role, it's hard to get a promotion within that role." - Lady Letterpress
