EY Parental leave question: how many weeks were you actually out? When I took my leave 3 years ago, I counted total of 21 weeks of leave. That’s including one firm winter holiday week. I remember I initially thought I would be back after 16 weeks, but then in the middle of my time off I got an email from Leave Team with the breakdown and it actually was 21 weeks. Can someone who took leave recently tell me the actual number of weeks?

Hello Deloitte H-1B fishes, Traveling abroad and don’t have a Deloitte phone. I was told I can access webmail and DTE on a personal device. Is there anything else to be concerned about? How would I access STAFFIT? Year-end impact statements? Any personal documents on ToD I should download? Already have pay stubs and employment verification letter for visa interview. I’m also in the middle of a PERM application so not sure if BAL would need other documents from Deloitte’s system while on PTO.
