World Health Organization Maternity Leave Comments
- "The organization asks for feedback on policies affecting women (e.g., maternity leave). There is a lot of travel." - Lady Sugihara
- "Longer maternity leave (24 weeks) just got instated in October 2016. Since January 2018 the budget to fund mat leave is now no longer on the shoulders of the technical departments, which is fantastic because it means your team can actually afford to fund someone to do your work when you are gone. While you are entitled to leave without pay until the baby is a year old, in reality this is dependent on your supervisor and HR is not going to enforce it. I requested an additional 2 months off unpaid and was denied. " - shufflepuffle
- "Only for staff, not for consultants. " - shufflepuffle
- "This is dependent on how supportive your boss is, not everyone gets this when asked. Unpaid leave is possible up to the baby's first birthday. " - shufflepuffle
