Recently lateraled and at my former firm one of my female coworkers just got back from maternity leave. The firm has a billable requirement of 2000 hours and those who go on parental leave have a prorated requirement based on leave taken. She just told me that the bonus is also prorated so even though she met the reduced requirement she will only get 60% of the bonus. Is this standard?

I go on maternity leave soon, and my firm offers 16 weeks paid leave, which I plan to fully take advantage of. The only female shareholder in our office keeps pushing me to only take 6 weeks though, because that's what she did. I feel really put off by her comments, but its also making me feel guilty about taking the full time. This is mostly a vent, but if anyone wants to give me some words of wisdom or thoughts, I will take them!
