I thought the law that would apply would be the state you live in law, so CA so you get up to 4 weeks with job protection before your planned cesarean, plus 8 weeks after. But you should probably talk to someone in employment law for that.

This...in CA you can go out on disability. Talk w HR. Do what you and baby need. Dont be a martyr.

Do you mean pregnancy leave ahead of your C section? Or just more time at home on bedrest? Is working from home an option in terms of what you need medically? I would talk to your doctor, get the necessary paperwork from them explaining why you medically need time off, and then talk to HR. You may be able to go on disability, use PTO days, etc. Talking to an employment lawyer may also help you figure out what benefits you get as a CA resident and what laws in the firm’s home state may impact you. Good luck and hope you’re feeling ok!

Anyone know much about routers? My father in Leander has an incredibly fast Asus router, but his home is 7,000 sq ft and the signal completely dies when you go up the stairs to their mother in law suite where their tv is. Extenders don’t work well either. I suggested doing four Google mesh points but he wants to see if he can figure out with his current router. Anyone know how to set up an AiMesh router with Asus?

Anyone ever had trouble with a doctor not wanting to certify a family member’s condition, in order to take a leave of absence?

The doctor is giving my father and me grief, saying (quote) “you aren’t providing care, the hospital is” and “there’s no reason you can’t go back to work.”
