BDO stopped accruing PTO during parental leave. What's the policy in your firm?

It’s always been that way at BDO. There wasn’t even a maternity leave policy at all until July 2008.

Don't know where you got that information. I just had paternal leave and my PTO accrual didn't change. Received the same amount I receive on every payday

@BDO2, you must be lucky and took the leave before the new policy. See workplace guide, April 2018, page 83.

Also paternal leave is different. It is 2 weeks and you are not on short term disability because you are unable to work, but maternity leave is for that. I think if you check with someone who was on Maternity leave they would not be accruing at BDO.

Paternity leave also does not accrue. I just got my approval for 2 weeks from Leave and they made it very clear that during that time I’m not accruing. It’s in the policy. And it changed sometime after September 2014, when I first took leave and I accrued PTO during that time. So, if you don’t know what you’re talking about, BDO 2, stop spreading out lies.

We really changed the policy? I was on mat leave in last two years and accrued it. Hoping to have another child in next year.

I looked under my accrual and checked before I posted. So it must have been changed after my leave.

Hot Take: Call Her Daddy was a better podcast when it was both Alexandra Cooper and Sofia Franklyn. It's just not the same with Cooper doing the podcast solo with a guest here and there. I'm sure COVID causing the bars to close didn't do her any favors either, limiting her content.
