Any advice for approaching a maternity leave conversation when my company has no policy, no HR dept and I have no contract? I’m a partner shareholder in my company (we’re not in the US), 19 wks pregnant. I know the time off and pay I’d like to negotiate, but my partners are male and weird about money. I’m underpaid in a very senior 6 yr position, my job is stressful and around the clock, so I want proper leave. I can’t afford childcare and our govt stat leave is terrible, it won’t pay my bills.

Hi Fishes, I need some inputs regarding the work policy and any suggestions for what can be done in below case. So my friend is in Wipro and recently her project changed (been 2-3 months now). Her team size is 5. Her manager is so ridiculous. She has to login at 9 AM and has to work till 12, sometimes 1 AM. She has been working on weekends since past 1.5 months. No off, no relaxation, nothing. She took this to HR but no action. Any suggestions what should be done. She is frustrated now. Help!

I recently left a firm I had been with for 6 years. I opted to go with a smaller office in the same field of law where it seemed that things were going to be better. I was given the senior attorney position to help manage the removal defense department of an immigration office. From the day I started, I have felt duped - the dept has very little organization and I came to clean up a hot mess of a docket. The owner is trying to change things but I feel misled in what I was offered. Wwyd?
